Holmes’ Hounds —Amador County, California’s own Sherlockian Society

Once 221B Baker Street was in place, the rest was elementary – a Sherlockian society, Holmes’ Hounds, formed to bring this room alive. Meeting every other month for evenings of engaging discussion of the original Holmesian canon, members dress in their Victorian finest, give character presentations, hold court to guest speakers, play period games, are “hare and hound” to scavenger hunts, and engage in quite a bit of eating, drinking, and tomfoolery. Hounds meet occasionally throughout the year for formal parties: Sherlock Holmes’ Birthday Celebrations, The Stoddart Dinner, and The Christmas Soiree.

Join the fun – you’ll find a Holmes’ Hounds membership form if you click here.

Holmes’ Hounds in person meetings are suspended until public health restrictions in Amador County allow us to gather the pack.

We are bereft without our Hounds around us — but all is not lost! Victoria Square is open as usual and the Hounds continue to amuse and delight with games and puzzles that can be played at a distance. Keep in touch with the Hounds — visit and “Like” Holmes’ Hounds on Facebook.
