The AGRA FORT, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, plays an important role in The Sign of the Four,  one of the earliest published Sherlock Holmes cases.

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” (hereafter HD&F), a conference about things Victorian in general and Holmesian in particular 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 June. Our next meeting will actually be the HD&F Conference in late March. The HD&F page gives information on date, time, place, and a list of speakers.
