Welcome to the Marche of Alderford!

Parade Photo The Marche of Alderford is a local branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism, located in Stark, Carroll, and Tuscarawas Counties, Ohio. We are part of the Barony of Brendoken, which in turn is part of the Middle Kingdom.

The SCA is a non-profit educational organization dedicated to the study and re-creation of the culture of the Middle Ages. Our meetings are free and open to the public. To learn more about Alderford and the SCA, visit one of our meetings or contact any of our officers. We hope you'll come and join us in creating the Current Middle Ages!

Where have all the photos gone?

We're getting ready to upgrade the Alderford web site to a new version of the software. To make it easier to organize photos, and to simplify maintenance of the Alderford site, all the photo albums by Milica and Justin are consolidated onto their personal site.
