The Shire of Owl's Nest is the Kennesaw / Marietta / Smyrna (Georgia) (USA) branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism in the Kingdom of Meridies. The Shire meets at 7PM on the first Monday of the month, at the Marietta Central Library.

Owl's Nest was founded in 1989, as a College under the auspices of the Barony of South Downs. Meetings were initially held on the campus of Kennesaw State College (now Kennesaw State University). Unable to secure faculty sponsorship because of liability concerns surrounding armored combat, members moved the meetings off campus. Owl's Nest maintained its College status because membership was comprised mostly of college students.

In 1992, Owl's Nest was elevated to Canton. Membership numbers had stablized and fewer members were college students.
