"How are you?" he said cordially, gripping my hand with a
strength for which I should hardly have given him credit.
"You have been in Afghanistan, I perceive." (STUD, 1887)

Founded in 1979, the Nashville Scholars of the Three Pipe Problem are dedicated to keeping green the memory of Sherlock Holmes and his creator, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

If you read the Holmes stories of Arthur Conan Doyle as a kid, or you watched the Sherlock Holmes movies from the 1940's (Basil Rathbone), or the Granada television series about Holmes in the '90's (Jeremy Brett), this is the place for you. Our literary group meets monthly at local Nashville eateries (pubs!) to discuss a story from the canon (the 60 Sherlock Holmes stories). We sell and trade each other our collected books, and make plans to visit other Sherlockian groups in the area.
You certainly don't have to be a Holmes scholar to visit our meetings.  Many members came the first time just out of curiosity. Being curious and adventurous are traits of a good Sherlockian. We also began an online group called WelcomeHolmes, presently the largest discussion group about Sherlock Holmes on the world wide web. You can be as anonymous or as active as you like. We have fun and invite you to join us. If you would like to know more about the origin of Sherlock Holmes check out this link , or the BBC pages on the character and legacy of Sherlock Holmes.

Can you find Holmes' lens, cap, pipes, and address?
