GREETINGS; welcome to Quarry Hill’s 2nd Blog!


This is the 2nd Blog of Quarry Hill Creative Center in Rochester, Vermont, one of the country’s oldest “alternative communities”( but also a family property rental business) that has been in existence since 1946. We are an “unintentional community” that started as a writer’s and artist’s colony, founded by Irving and Barbara Fiske, a WPA writer and a visionary artist from Greenwich Village.

We welcome comments, questions, and thoughts!

I have had trouble posting there recently, so have created a 2nd blog in case we can’t fix that one.



About quarryhillcreativecenterVT

I am the daughter of the founders of Quarry Hill Creative Center in Rochester, VT. I've been a writer all my life, and also love to draw in pastel, like my mother. My father taught me to write and many other things (rather as Prospero taught Miranda). I learned many things from my mother too-- not just how to draw, but how to be caring and kind to animals and things that can not protect themeselves. "They shall not hurt or destroy in all my holy mountain." That has been her central point of view and is one of Quarry Hill's mottos. We welcome visitors, love children, and have places to rent and sell if anyone wants to come live in the beauty of the Vermont Mountains.
