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

It is now Wednesday Oct 5...

It is the most beautiful time of year in Vermont (I love Spring even more...) but it feels terribly pulled-apart by the floods, the problems people are having. Some have lot their entire homes. Others can 't go back in to the homes they have (no earth under the house). I am glad we do at least still have a home, with every problem we have... (the house, built in 1974 by hip friends, is wonderful, but has its needs and problems). I am so glad to have a place to live and want to help others if I possibly can. Things are getting better, but it's going to take time...
