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

Dalai Lama in Middlebury Oct 12 and 13

The Dalai Lama will come to Middlebury October 12 and 13. The talk on October 12 will be for the college. Tickets for his public talk on the 13th will go on sale September 27 at 6 AM. The space is limited.  It is suggested that if you are interested in getting a ticket that you go to the box office at the Center For Fine Arts before that and fill out all your information, so it won't need to be collected on the 27th when it will be very busy. For questions and further information, please call the CFA.

There is lots of security planned for our town while he is here. Just a point of information.
