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.

This "old" Girl Scout was wowed by visiting Juliette Gordon Low's childhood home, which is now the headquarters of the Girl Scouts. The historic house has been beautifully restored, with funds coming from the scouts' "Dimes for Daisy" campaign (Juliette's childhood nickname was Daisy). The furnishings reflect the period when she was growing up, from her birth in 1860 to her marriage in 1886. Many of the original furniture and paintings have been found and returned to the house, including paintings and sculpture done by Juliette Low herself. Tour guides are quite knowledgeable, there was an elevator available, and very little waiting to the next tour. We were met with helpful smiles everywhere. The book/gift store contains wonderful presents for the Girl Scout in your life, and the prices are very accessible - aimed at the young girls who come to visit from all over the world, troop by troop.

Thank you for seeing and enjoying Daisy's home. It is truly a treasure! We feel a deep appreciation for those Girl Scouts in the 1950s who raised "Dimes for Daisy" to restore the home, as well as to the Scouts and alumni today who donate to the Circle of Friends so that the house remains a beautiful experience for years to come!
