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

To Quarry Hill Residents -- FREE FLOWER BULBS!

Hi Friends, I sent for too many spring blooming flowers such as daffodils etc this year-- not an inordinate amount, but considering everything it seems like a lot. When they arrive, if anyone would like to have some, I'm happy to spread them around as long as they really do get planted (some can be "forced" for indoor bloom). I just like to see the place bloom with Spring flowers -- and all flowers, for that matter. I don't mind if they are in a different yard than mine. They should be here in a few days, and I'll let people know when they come. Let me know if you are interested. Thanks! LB
