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 Writer on Sister Wives (Blogcritics)

Last year I wrote about the TLC show <> Sister Wives each Sunday night for Blogcritics in their column TV Open Thread. This year, while I'd still like to write an article on this topic (polygamy revealed) occasionally, I have other writing projects on which I'd like to focus. Fortunately for me, a very interesting young woman named Sara, who has a site called, and lives in a committed polygamous relationship with three other women and one man, was willing to take over the column. She is much more in touch with the issues (so to speak) than I am :-), and I am very happy with the arrangement. I'll still write for Blogcritics on other issues, as well. Check out "Polygrrl's" blog. It is fascinating and I am amazed at the ease with which they all seem to make their arrangement work... there are no children yet which may make a difference, as they can be spontaneous in their interactions. But I like the fact that the women are friends and each person has his or her own space. My best wishes to them all. Ladybelle
