THE AGRA TREASURERS is the Sherlock Holmes literary society of Dayton. Nationally, we have been best known since 2014 as the sponsors of “Holmes, Doyle, & Friends,” a conference that began (under a different name) in 1981. Please click on the “About Us” and “HD&F” tabs at the top of the page for more information. Locally, we usually meet every other month for luncheon or dinner at a restaurant in the area or a member’s residence. In the summer, we frequently also have a picnic, as we did last July. Our next meeting will be on ​​Sunday, 13 January 2019, at 1:00 P.M.,  at the home of ANN & STEVE SIEFKER, 5702 Kirkstone Drive, Dayton (Washington Township), Ohio  45459. ​Click here for a map. Bring a covered dish to share — salads, appetizers, desserts, or other foods (or drinks). The Club will supply “good English beef ” and tableware. The quiz, by Lorraine REIBERT, will be on “The Crooked Man.” Please park on the street, reserving the driveway for those with walking difficulties. (The house is handicapped-accessible.)

New members are always welcome!

The Agra Fort, now a UNESCO World Heritage site, played an important role in “The Sign of the Four,“ the second published Sherlock Holmes case.
