House Zacharia is an SCA household headed by Dad Timotheus and Mom Lynnette.
We're in the Barony of Altavia, the Kingdom of Caid. But that's mostly becuase Mom & Dad live in Altavia, and most of us play in or with Altavia. In actually we live in various places in Caid.
The current House Zacharia Household is the Third Age of a household that was founded in 1986. Visit our history page to read more.
