Welcome to the Marche of Havenholde

Welcome to the Marche of Havenholde! We're an Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) group mundanely located in Springfield, OH. We are part of the Barony of the Flaming Gryphon.

What is the Society for Creative Anachronism?

The Havenholde business meeting is held on the Fourth Wednesday of the month.   The next Business Meeting is on Wednesday September 28, 2016 at 7:00 p.m.  It will be held at the home of Erik Erikson (Ernie Husted) and and Drea di’Pellegrini (Drea Leed). The address is 214 South Shaffer St., Springfield, OH 45506.  News and information from the Baronial Meeting will be passed on along with discussions on both old and new business.  If you have any questions call or text Ernie at  (937) 974-2634.

Take 70 east (or west) to Exit 52B. Get off on 52B, which merges onto 68 North to Urbana.

Take the first exit off of 68. This merges onto US 40.

You'll go through two stop lights: one at North Bechtle St., and one at Western Ave. A couple of blocks after the second stop light, you'll see a large U-Haul sign and parking lot with U-haul trucks to your left. Turn right at this intersection onto Shaffer St.

Go two blocks (you'll go over some railroad tracks) until you reach a stop sign at High St. Our house is on the left side of the next block, almost at the end of the block, at 214 S. Shaffer. It's a white house.

    Note:  Please note we would like to start the meeting at 7 p.m.  Starting on time will allow those attending that live further away more time to get home after the meeting.  

    The August Business Meetig was held at the home of Ragnar of Birka (Eric Ottoson) and Leah of High Wycombe (Ellen Ottoson).  There were 12 people in attendance.  If you were unable to attend and have any questions about what was discussed please contact the Havenholde Seneschal for updates.  A new location to hold the Havenholde Business meeting is being looked into, but in the meantime those members of the group that have opened up their home allowing the meeting to be held there is really appreciated.


    We also have a Wednesday Sewing Night/Project Night where shire members get together and socialize. When held it  occurs on the Third Wednesday  of the month at 7:00 p.m. Our Project Night meeting is held at Drea Leed and Ernie Husted's place: 214 S. Shaffer St, Springfield, OH. Directions.
