Greetings, and Welcome! The Shire of Mountain Freehold, located in northwestern Vermont, is a local branch of an international non-profit organization known as the SCA, or Society for Creative Anachronism. Our shire is located within the Northern Region of the East Kingdom. The SCA is an inclusive community pursuing research and re-creation of pre-17th-century skills, arts, combat, and culture. The lives of participants are enriched as we gain knowledge of history through activities, demonstrations, and events.

Next Meetings and Practices
SPECIAL NOTE – Because of the Covid Plague, Mountain Freehold’s fencing and heavy fighting practices, as well as in-person shire meetings and A&S gatherings, are canceled until further notice. This is the best decision for the safety and health of our community. Please let us know if we can answer any questions for you. Stay in touch (digitally), stay home, and stay healthy.
Once the plague has passed, fencing and fighting practices are held almost every Sunday from 2-5 pm at the Browns River Middle School in Jericho VT. If it’s nice weather, the practice is in the Mills Riverside Park, nearby. For more information, click to see our Meetings and Practices Page.
On the Second Sunday of each month (if there are no other conflicts) we have an “Arts and Sciences” session from 1-2, just before the fencing and heavy list practice starts. This can be learning a new craft, hearing a short lecture on an interesting topic, or just working on our individual projects and sharing ideas and inspiration.
We also have an Officer’s Meeting on the Fourth Sunday of every month (barring other conflicts.) Officer meetings are open to interested Freeholders.
We have an outdoor archery practice site for the summer months in East Fairfield, on Odd’s property. For current archery activities, it’s best to contact David Poirier, our archery marshal.
