Welcome to Potash Hill
Discover Our Vermont Hilltop
A Treasured Place in the Green Mountains of Southern Vermont
In 2021, the Marlboro School of Music purchased the former Marlboro College campus known as Potash Hill, a beautiful and historic property located in the foothills of southern Vermont, which has served as our summer home since 1951. This purchase, and the establishment of Potash Hill, Inc., ensures that the property will remain intact and be preserved for generations to come, bringing a vital measure of stability to the organization, the surrounding community, and the many friends and neighbors who have lived, learned, and listened here, and who have come to treasure this special place.
We are committed to being good stewards of the land, to raising the funds necessary to preserve Potash Hill and honor its rich history, and to nurture its potential for the future. As our vision for Potash Hill develops, we invite you to explore this website, and to help us in supporting future uses of the campus that are compatible with our mission and values, and which will enhance the cultural and economic vitality of the town, region and state.
Marlboro Music, the internationally-acclaimed chamber music study center and festival, has called Potash Hill home since its founding in 1951. Explore Marlboro’s illustrious history and learn how you can experience the concerts and open rehearsals at “the classical world’s most coveted retreat” (The New Yorker).
