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

this is Nevada, a little dog whose life some friends and I just saved. She was in the streets of Tulsa, Oklahoma. A South Carolinian woman there for a funeral (or a wedding) found her, and took her to a dog friendly motel. But when she got ready to leave, she said she would take the dog to a pount if she was not rescued.
With a lot of scrambling, we saved Nevada (as she became known, meaning Silver) and she was transported to San Angelo, Texas, where by the grace of Connie Weant, a rescue friend there, she has a place to live. I hope she will find a "forever home" soon...
