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

Join us for a FESTIVAL of the ARTS next year at Quarry Hill, VT's oldest alternative art colony and writer's retreat! 

My friend Pim FK, a Dutch artist, and I have been planning a project featuring the artistic/ literary side of Quarry Hill Creative Center next year (2015),

We plan to ask several writers and artists (and musicians also if you like, video artists, etc.) to come to Quarry Hill next summer, and together create Pim's idea-- a work of collaborative art!  Writers will write brief stories and poems (some true, some imaginary) and will post them on the wall. Artists will choose one (or more than one) to create a work of art to illustrate the tale or image.  

Video artists and musicians could make films and theme music to go with the story.
We are still just developing the idea, and welcome your thoughts and ideas to help us make Quarry Hill again a fully flowering creative place where, as Irving said, Time and Eternity intersect.

Check out our crowdfunding site and see what you think!  We can also adjust the site according to people's ideas!
Ladybelle and Pim
