The Shire of Montevale is a local group of the Society for Creative Anachronism, and it comprises Franklin and Fulton counties, as well as parts of Cumberland and Adams counties, all located in south central Pennsylvania. It is also part of the East Kingdom of the SCA which stretches from Pennsylvania and Delaware in the south to Quebec and the maritime provinces of Canada in the north.

The Society for Creative Anachronism, or SCA, is an international organization dedicated to researching and re-creating the arts, skills, and traditions of pre-17th-century Europe. What makes the SCA different from taking a college history course or attending a Renaissance Fair is active participation in the process. Members of the SCA study and take part in a variety of activities, including combat, archery, equestrian activities, costuming, cooking, metalwork, woodworking, music, dance, calligraphy, fiber arts, and much more. If it was done in the Middle Ages or Renaissance, odds are you'll find someone in the SCA interested in recreating it.

An invitation to join us

The members of Montevale would love to have you become involved in our shire. You'll find us to be a very friendly and accepting group of medieval enthusiasts of all ages. If you live anywhere in or near Chambersburg, PA, we invite you to our monthly meetings. If you are already part of another SCA group, you will be most welcome at any of our regular activities and at our events.
