Welcome to Quarry Hill's Blog!

Quarry Hill Creative Center in Rochester, VT, founded 1946 by Barbara and Irving Fiske, is Vermont's oldest alternative community and at one time was probably also its largest. In the 60s -80s, as many as 90 people lived here.
It was and is visited each year, often in summer (but in every season, really) by visitors from all over the world.
We welcome interesting and creative people who are peaceful, bring no weapons, don't believe in hitting children or killing animals, and enjoy the beauty of Vermont and of themselves.

Most of us do not adhere to any particular dogma or religion, though many do find Eastern philosophy closest to our own thought (some of us are also members of the Quakers/Society of Friends).
We value the individual, particularly people who are energetic and have a sense of humor.
Visitors are welcome-- and prospective residents, too. There are some places for rent, others for sale. If interested, get in touch!
And, please follow the Blog and comment whenever you like!

"The symbol is the enemy of the reality, and the reality is ever one's true guide, true friend, true companion, and true self." Irving Fiske, 1908-1990

Bethel Mountain Road open on weekends now! Hooray!

Thanks to Larry Plesant, businessman, intellectual, and former Quarry Hillian, who tells us that the Bethel Mountain Road (our way to the Interstate) is open to the public on weekends! We can get out now-- and others can come in! I hope people will plan on visiting Vermont during the Leaf Season. It is going to be a beautiful one, and Vermont needs business. It's lovely here and the road workers and volunteers are giving their all to make sure people can travel to and from Vermont. Thanks to them all! -- Ladybelle
