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 Birthday to Irving!!!

Today would be Irving's 104th birthday... he was born in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, on March 5, 1908. He was the oldest (living) child of four, several babies having been either miscarried or stillborn before he came along. His classical composer brother, Milton, was born on January 27, 1911 (Mozart's birthday); then came his sister Miriam and his youngest brother Robert (Bobby). (I don't know their exact birthdates). I think of Irving today with a lot of love... all love throughout all infinity, as his last note to all his friends and family said. Not eternity-- infinity. "All love throughout all infinity." The same to you, Irv... Love Ladybelle and all who feel the same way
