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

I hope people will contribute to help rebuild Rochester, Vermont, and other parts of Vermont too...

Vermont will rise again, but it will take help from people like yourselves who have loved Vermont (and Quarry Hill), and enjoyed being here, and who realize how difficult life can be for people here without good roads and infrastructure. This is a good time to contribute to help people whose houses are completely unlivable right now, and to help make the roads (such as the one below Quarry Hill, leading to Churchville) passable again. Right now there is no road to Churchville... at all! Thanks to all.

  1. I am sorry to hear that you were affected by the ravages of Hurricane Irene. I wish you the best in your recovery process and sincerely hope you get the help you need. I am no stranger to the onslaught of natural forces, having had to boat out of my ruined 2 story home in our 1986 flood.
    I mainly write to thank you for subscribing to my blog, "mongrel4u@wordpress". I am glad you have enjoyed my work. I checked out your website and will return to see what's going on with you from time to time. Looks like a hotbed of creativity. My kind of place. Thanks again.
