A Must for Girl Scouts

I was a Girl Scout more than 60 years ago, so this was a ride down Memory Lane. But my husband (never a Girl OR a Boy Scout) found it equally fascinating. Low's personal history and how she came to found The Girl Scouts, along with the historic nature of the house and her family, are well worth the visit.... More

Even if you weren't a girl scout, the tour of this house and learning about the life of this fascinating and accomplished woman was well worth the price of admission.

This was my 3rd visit to the Birthplace and it absolutely doesn't disappoint. We spent the day as a troop and had a house tour and orientation. After lunch we got to spend time in a special interest session. These used to be 2 hours long, but were cut to 1 1/2 hours by request. As a troop of Girl... More

We did not go inside this attraction but were able to view it both by rental car, but, better, via bike. We rented bikes at Ellis Square using the CAT bike rental ($5 per bike per day) and drove by. If you would rather not take the time to see the inside, you can still see the historic outside markers... More

There are a lot of activities available at this location for fellow Girl Scouts. The house itself is really, really beautiful and the garden behind it caught me off guard.

This is a beautifully maintained home with a fascinating, and 'haunted' history! I found the guide spoke a wee bit too fast the night we were there, clearly a well rehearsed speech, but nonetheless, it was one of my Savannah highlights!

Beautiful historic home. Only access is the parlor floor and outside in the courtyard. Henry the caretaker/tour guide is very knowledgeable and a delight to hear speak about the history.

This was a nice little tour of the birthplace of the founder of Girl Scouts. As a former Girl Scout and daughter of a Girl Scout leader who recently passed away, I was moved by the efforts of Mrs. Low to create an organization for girls of all socioeconomic backgrounds.
