Located in Columbia, South Carolina, The Hansom Wheels is an official scion society of the Baker Street Irregulars of New York. It is devoted to the preservation of the memory of the world's first consulting detective, Sherlock Holmes, and to the study of The Canon or Sacred Writings: the four long and fifty-six short acccounts of Holmes's cases written mostly by his friend Dr. John H. Watson (two are by Holmes himself and two by unknown authors) and published by the literary agent Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The society meets five times a year (in February, April, August, October, and December) for dinner, discussion, and a presentation that may be a talk by a member or guest speaker, a reading of a pastiche of a Holmes story, or a play. The first official meeting was held on April 14, 1977. For a complete history of the Hansom Wheels, please click here:
