“Gordon Low House”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2014

We took a tour and really enjoyed the beauty of the home, the history behind it. The garden was just starting to bloom, love the gardens at this home and all the surrounding area.

“Historical beautiful house restored”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

The house has recently undergone a massive restoration inside and out. The exterior is newly painted and a new garden sculpture unveiled of Juliette Low and her dog in the garden. The house is important in the history of Girl Scouting of USA, but is also important in the history of Savannah. Definitely worth a visit and one of few historic houses that is handicap accessible.

“Very interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

Savannah has many historical houses worth visiting, not only for their beautiful architecture or interiors, but most of all for their history. The Juliette Gordon Low house was one of the best houses we visited, she was a fascinating and courageous woman who left her mark on Savannah.

Interesting both because of the Girl Scout history, and because most everything is original to the house.

“Great piece of Girl Scout History”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014

Traveled with our Girl Scout troop this past week. The house is beautiful, and the curators are a wealth of knowledge for the guests visiting!
