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

My article in KIDS VT

This month in KidsVT, a magazine given out free to parents and kids around the state, I have an article (p.15) about The Art of... Rug Hooking. This coincides with the yearly Rug Hooking show at the Shelburne Museum, "Hooked in the Mountains." It's about Stephanie Allen-Krauss,daughter of my rug teacher Anne Ashworth, a legend in rug hooking in this state, and how she demonstrates rug hooking to children and teaches them at her home and studio and in classes around the country. If you happen to be where the magazine is, take a look! -- Ladybelle
