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

Joya and "Rupert Moonjumper, Jr." on their wedding day, Aug 31, 2013, Warren, VT.

Joya and "Rupert Moonjumper, Jr."  standing by the Mad RIver. It was a rainy day and they had to have the wedding ceremony under a tent, but right afterward the rain seemed to let up a good deal and they were able to take wedding photos outside, on the banks of the river.

The next day, there was a picnic under sunny skies and the brave went swimming. (I was only brave enough because my friend Sally Mitchison urged me into the chilly September water, but I enjoyed it after the initial freeze).  Joya and Brem both were immensely happy and everyone there seemed to have a great time...The ceremony was held at the Farm at Mad River in Warren, VT.
