The Shire of Blackhawk is our small slice of the Society of Creative Anachronism (SCA) and is located in the Midlands Region (Illinois) of the Middle Kingdom, just south of the Kingdom of Northshield.
The Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) is an international non-profit volunteer educational organization. The SCA is devoted to the research and re-creation of pre-seventeenth century skills, arts, combat, culture, and employing knowledge of history to enrich the lives of participants through events, demonstrations, and other educational presentations and activities.
The SCA's "Known World" consists of 20 kingdoms and over 30,000 members around the globe.

Northwest Community Center/Corbett Building
1327 N. Johnston Ave.
The first Fighter Practice of the month is also a Cut and Thrust Practice.
There is plenty of space for both Martial and Arts and Science Activities.
