Sherlock Holmes and the Chester Baskerville Society

The Chester Baskerville Society members are devotees of the greatest detective who never lived ... Sherlock Holmes.  As a scion (branch) society of the International Baker Street Irregulars, our CBS meets irregularly to discuss all things related to Dr. Watson's friend. We enjoy the original adventures published by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the volumes of research concerning Holmes' career, as well as the plethora of movies, cartoons and pastiches that have elevated the detective to iconic proportions. Please click the Events tab at the top to view upcoming meetings. You may click on the tab below to meet some of our members, and please be sure to visit the bottom of this page for a slide show that gives a better idea of how we roll. For more information please feel free to contact us at .


We have dedicated this webpage to fans of all ages for their further enjoyment of our world of Sherlock Holmes. The material showcased will be updated throughout the year. You will find seasonal offerings of Old Time Radio broadcasts, interesting videos, puzzles, games and mysteries to be solved. In 1989 we began with only a printed magazine, released five time each year, to extend the reach of our favorite detective to a wider age range of readers, and are now delighted to continue our mission of bringing you Holmes For The Holidays
