Welcome to our humble shire...

Our small slice of the Society of Creative Anachronism (SCA) is located in the Midlands Region of the Middle Kingdom, just south of the Kingdom of Northshield (Northern Illinois around Rockford).

The SCA is an international non-profit educational organization, dedicated to the preservation, research and recreation of the crafts, arts, and experiences of the Middle Ages and Renaissance.


The Society for Creative Anachronism is dedicated to researching and re-creating the arts and skills of pre-17th-century Europe. Our “Known World” consists of 20 kingdoms, with over 30,000 members residing in countries around the world. Members, dressed in clothing of the Middle Ages and Renaissance, attend events which feature tournaments, royal courts, feasts, dancing, various classes & workshops, and more.


Our Shire meets several times a month.  Click on the Activities Link above for more information!
