About Us

Baker Street West (second floor at Hein & Company Bookstore in Jackson, California), is a remarkable environment, recreating a Victorian Square and several themed shoppes honoring Sherlock Holmes, including his residence at 221B Baker Street.

Established in 2013, Baker Street West is already gaining international notice, attracting fans of Sherlock, Victoriana, and Steampunk.
• It is home to Amador County’s only literary society, Holmes Hounds (with 70 members), and to Baker Street Players, a theatrical ensemble dedicated to Sherlockian and Victorian drama.
• It is both a cultural organization and a venue, providing youth of all ages, with acting classes, workshops, and performance opportunities. By offering its unparalleled venue for meetings, photo shoots, and docented tours, Baker Street West has already begun attracting visitors to Amador County.
• It is an event and entertainment company, offering spirited adventures in the Victorian world: full-length plays, Afternoon Teas, Dinner Theatre Mysteries, and private parties.
