As a long-time Girl Scout as a girl and as an adult, visiting the Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace was something of pilgrimage for me. I visited during the Girl Scouts 100th Anniversary year. My visit fulfilled a longstanding desire to see this house.
I took the guided tour. I really enjoyed my visit as the tour guides were great. The house is well maintained and decorated with Gordon family furnishings, including some paintings by Daisy, as she was known. She was a very forward-thinking woman. Her Girl Scouts organization was, in a way, a forerunner of the women’s rights movement because, by bringing girls into the outdoors for activities, she taught girls to be self-reliant and resourceful. She encouraged girls to prepare for roles as professional women and homemakers.
One reviewer said that this was the Girl Scouts HQ. That’s incorrect. The HQ are at 420 Fifth Ave. in NYC. It isn’t the first HQ which were at 330 Drayton Street in Savannah. This location is the Juliette Gordon Low Girl Scout National Center where girls can take part in programs and learn more about the organization's remarkable founder.
It is a must-see when touring Savannah.
