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 the South Downs. Meetings were initially held on the campus of Kennesaw State College (now Kennesaw State University) in Kennesaw, Georgia (USA). Unable to secure status as an offical college organization or faculty sponsorship because of liability concerns surrounding armored combat, members soon moved the meetings off campus. Owl's Nest maintained its College status because membership was still mostly comprised of college students.

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

On September 13, 1997, the Canton of Owl's Nest was elevated to Shire at the coronation of Ard-Righ Ailgheanan and Ard-Righan Calleja. Since then, the Shire of Owl's Nest has continued to thrive.
