Saw as part of a ghost tour. Which worked out well as it is a Mecca for girl scout troops during the day. She was a remarkable woman of many talents and ahead of her time,

Our GS Troop spent a large part of the day here on June 23. I think it is important for Girl Scout Troops to make the pilgrimage to Juliette Gordon Low's home at least once. We had a slide show and tour led by Trish. She was terrific. She was personable and fun while giving a history of the family,... More

I learned much more about the person, Juliette Gordon Low, than I had ever heard. The insight into the history of the residence and the impact the family had on Savannah was interesting and memorable.

This is a beautifully preserved house museum. The decor is period and the docents quite knowledgeable. While it is a beautiful house in its own right, the fact that it is the birthplace of Juliette Gordon Low, founder of the Girl Scouts, makes it even more special. It is believed to be haunted, and I confess to thinking this even... More

We went here as part of a different tour so it was at night. It is a beautiful place.I did not go upstairs because my legs were killing me so I missed that part of the tour. One of the curators of the house did show us a room that no one else saw. It has great history and very... More

Now you can put a place to where the cookies come from! Kind of cool that this huge organization that touches so many girls annually was started by this woman! Fun to walk by and visit.

During our recent vacation in Savannah, we had the opportunity to visit the Juliette Gordon Low House. This is a high quality guided tour and well worth the price and time it takes to tour. We learned a great deal about Juliette Gordon Low, who founded the Girl Scouts. The home is relatively luxurious and in very good condition. It... More

Interesting look into a beautiful Historic Savannah home, and the life of the trailblazer who started this great organization. Remember to buy a patch from the gift shop to commemorate your girl's visit.
