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

Houses and Rooms available at Quarry Hill

Happy Holidays to everyone who kindly reads this blog. I'm always amazed by how many people (and from how far away) read it, yet not many ever post a question or comment. I'd be glad to communicate with anyone who wishes to, and answer any question I can. We have several houses and rooms presently available. Did Irene leave you homeless? Please check us out! Our housing is some of the most affordable in the state of Vermont and in one of the most beautiful places in the world. Very soon (some presently) we will have--- a room in the community building (at present one, very neat and tidy woman lives in the building). The room has a king size bed with comfortable mattress, nice dressers, etc. A small house that belonged to my father, the remarkable Irving Fiske. One room contains his papers and is locked; the other two rooms are available, tidy and pleasant. There's a small kitchen and one full bath. (This would be a rental only, but is reasonable, comfortable, and centrally located.) There will soon be another house available, as the family living in it regretfully must move. It has several bedrooms-- a mom, son and daughter lived there-- a living room, bathroom with washer and dryer, and kitchen. We also have some houses that need repairs and we would be glad to trade time in the houses in exchange for some work on them. One of them has the most beautiful view (west) on the place, and many bedrooms. Good for a large family or group of friends, perhaps. There will soon be more places to live. Please give me, Ladybelle or my husband, Brion, a call at 802 767 3902 and we will be glad to talk it over with you. There are other, less lavish rooms in the community building (The Farmhouse, we call it also), as well. Quarry Hill, Vermont's oldest community, is open to new residents. Now is the time to come and live here, and help us make it into an even more warm, friendly and unified place to live. I look forward to hearing from you! Ladybelle
