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

Magi-La for Sale

We are sorry to see that the beautiful Magi-La, the land to the East of Quarry Hill, is for sale. It's a gorgeous place with wonderful meadows, woods, pond, house, dojo, etc.

I wish that it could become a place to gather for the young people who grew up both here and there, but that not being in the cards, let us hope that the people who buy it eventually will be open to having an alternative lifestyle group next door and be welcoming and friendly to us as we surely will be to them. I hope they are very open-minded!
