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

Deedy Andersson

Deedy is a nearby neighbor and longtime friend.
I hear from Harold Hubbard, Deedy's partner, that she is beginning to make a recovery from the terrible accident she went through last month-- dragged almost under the wheels of a dump truck which had caught its raised dump section on an electric wire, which wrapped itself around Deedy's leg.
She managed to free herself before she was drawn under the wheels of the truck but suffered injury to the leg. However, it seems that the danger which held all her friends in dread -- that she might lose the leg-- is ameliorating.

She is a very brave woman, whose survival may be attributed in part to her walking every day, rain or shine. I have always admired and had the utmost affection for Deedy, who does so much for her family, her students (at Rochester school) and her friends.

All the help we can offer, we want to offer. I hope others might see this and wish to help Deedy and family (she won't be able to work right away, and Harold has had to take time off from work too).

If anyone wishes to help them,
Deedy Andersson and Harold Hubbard
North Hollow Road
Rochester, VT. 05767

Financial donations are probably the most helpful. I am fairly sure that everyone in Rochester knows of the situation and are trying to help out as they  did during Hurricane Irene and after, one to another.

Thank you.
