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

New Name for our LItzine

We're calling our Wordpress literary magazine a name first proposed by Allen Sherman for a literary magazine he had planned some years ago-- The Moon Seen in Water. It's called The Moon Seen in Water, Quarry Hill's Literary and Artistic Magazine. We also will write news, essays, and all sorts of things. If anyone has a piece they'd like to send in, please send it to me at and I'll post it on the Wordpress. com site. It's beautiful-- with a "theme" called Matala, it looks like a Tibetan Tanka, and is absolutely gorgeous. I hope others will want to contribute to it, and send in news of their experiences in the Irene Hurricane-- and other world events and issues. Best to all and thanks for all good wishes during Irene and after. Ladybelle
