We took the tour of this historic home and were able to see interesting items from the 1800's as well as learn about the life of Juliette Low. She had a very interesting life and many talents that We did not know about even though we have been active with the Girl Scouts. There were several boys and men on... More

Even if you're not a girl scout this is worth visiting. We recommend purchasing a tour of this house in conjunction with the Davenport House tour and Andrew Lowe house tour, more for your money. It took us most of the day to see these three homes.

As a former Girl Scout and on the committee of the our Take the Lead event in Allentown PA, it was very nice to see the history behind the founder of the Girl Scouts. The home was gorgeous and I learned so much about Juliette Gordon Low

My Brownie loved it and is planning a "troop trip" for next year. She learned so much and is excited to share with the other girls at our next meeting. Great outing for a scout!!

Great trip for all girl scouts and all those who have ever been a girl scout. Both full of history and female empowerment. Surprisingly easy to find just off the main drag a few blocks. Be prepared to pay for parking in the surrounding area.

I was never a Girl Scout, but after learning a bit more about Juliette Gordon Low, I'd like to learn more about her. She was a very interesting woman! The house still contains several original items which my family enjoys seeing. I'm sure all Girl Scouts enjoy making a pilgrimage to Ms. Low's home, but even if you're not a... More

This was my second visit to the Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace. I always wanted to return. She was a remarkable woman, and the house reflects the person she was.

We are not involved in Girl Scouts, but we wanted to get a little "flavor" about this family--it's one of the "big deals" in Savannah history. When we tour a home, it's not to see the "stuff" in the home, but we are interested in the story of the home and the family. Our tour guide was 19--a college freshman.... More
