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

Where's the Stats key?

What has happened to the Statistics on these Google blogs (Blogger)? I can't find the number or sort of people reading my blog any more. Sigh. It was a lot of fun.

Hope you are all still enjoying it!

Be well.


  1. Hi Ladybelle!
    My name is Christine. I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to visit Quarry Hill in the summer of 2010. I was invited through a friend of Airon. We stayed for 4days or so. And had an amazing time! Met so many beautiful people, enjoyed the costume party, the many talented beings, the delicious food(pancakes), the rivers(cliff jumping) and hospitality. That weekend will forever be imprinted in mind. It stands out as one of the best times I've had in my life. I wanted to thank you for having me and give my gratitude. In addition to you, your family and the extended family of Quarry Hill! I'm glad I could've been a part of such beauty! Hope to see you again!
    Sending love and peace,

  2. Thanks, Christine! What a nice message. I love it when people comment on the Blog. They don't do it nearly as much as I would like...
    I hope you will come by again!
