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

Happy New Year

We are hoping for a great 2012, much better than 2011 which was a difficult year for everyone in Vermont, not as much for us as for some, but we did lose our lower road and our direct access to Hancock and Rt 100 downhill. The road is closed because it is said to be unstable and unsafe. I hope one day it will be fixed, but I rather doubt it because of the money and effort it would take. It's a bit unnerving to have only one way out, but on the other hand, it's more quiet. In any case, I hope for a wonderful 2012 for all Vermonters and peace and goodwill for everyone everywhere... (good luck, right?). Ladybelle People here seem to be doing all right. Barbara is hanging in there. I hope to spend most of the rest of the winter writing. Hope all are well.
