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

The Greatest Sherlock of them All

We love Benedict Cumberbach and his ultra-modern, clever, pun-ishing "Sherlock." We also like "Elementary" with Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu very much. But our great and beloved favorite is, was, and always will be, the Sherlockian actor Jeremy Brett-- who loved and understood the  wonderful character whom he portrayed in so many special, exact, and humorous episodes of  "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes" and other BBC productions...
Lest he be forgotten... for these new Sherlocks are pretty neat. "Brainy is the new sexy,"says dominatrix Irene Adler in "A Scandal in Belgravia" in Sherlock, Series 2...

Here is OUR Sherlock, or our favorite one forever.Jeremy Brett
