"Holmes struck his hand passionately upon the rock" [HOUN]
There's some interesting activity afoot in Rockford, Illinois. According to an article in the Rockford Register Star, eleven regional visitor attractions have banded together to form a series of themed events from September through January.
Mysteries of Rockford is the brainchild of the Discovery Center Museum, New American Theater and Rockford Area Convention and Visitors Bureau. Over 30 events in all, some feature Sherlock Holmes exclusively, from the play "Sherlock's Last Case" to a Sherlock Holmes exhibit at the Discovery Center.
