Things to Do In Savannah – Girl Scouts Founder Juliette Gordon Low’s Birthplace

On our road trip this summer we had the pleasure of visiting Savannah, Georgia. It’s a charming city filled with history which provided an abundance of opportunities for me to educate our children on the history of the south. While looking for things to do in Savannah we came across Girl Scouts founder Juliette Gordon Low’s Birthplace. Our daughter is a Junior in the Girl Scouts so this was an attraction that we didn’t want to miss.

Things to Do In Savannah Girl Scouts Founder Juliette Gordon Lows Birthplace

Praised as a Girl Scout national center in Savannah, Georgia, the Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace has authentically amazing experiences for girl scouts and their families. The house is often called by its more popular name, “The Birthplace,” as it was where the founder of the Girl Scouts was born and raised. The popular historic house museum is a standing representation of Victorian entwined with the history of Savannah.

The Birthplace is touted as Savannah’s first registered National Historic Landmark (NHL). It was built in 1818 to 1821 for James Moore Wayne, the former mayor of Savannah. Wayne sold the house in 1831 to Juliette Gordon Low’s grandparents — his niece and her husband — Sarah Stites Gordon and William Washington Gordon I. Four generations of Gordons lived in the house. Most notably, Juliette Gordon Low, affectionately dubbed “Daisy” by her friends and family, gave life to the Girl Scouts at the must-see destination, her childhood home.

Did you know that Julliette Gordon Low was an artist? This is a bust of her father she created.

Juliette Gordon Low became interested in making the Girl Scouts, then called the Girl Guides, when she met the founder of the Boy Scouts, Robert Baden Powell. In 1912, she brought the movement to Savannah. More specifically, she brought the movement to her childhood home. In her home, she called her cousin, Nina Anderson Pape, saying her famous words, “Come right over! I’ve got something for the girls of Savannah, and all America, and all the world, and we’re going to start it tonight.” Girls all over the town were recruited, from the steps of churches to the daughters of friends, and they held teas in the parlor, which were bragged better than the teas her mother held for President Taft.

In 1953, the Girl Scouts purchased the home and elegantly restored it to its former glory. Now, enjoy the interior of the home, which is fully furnished with original Gordon furnishings and art by Juliette Gordon Low. Participate with the general public in tours all year-round. Join guided tours to get in-depth knowledge about the home and deeply investigate the life of Daisy. Enjoy the lively stories of four generations of Gordons and fun hands-on activities that help girl scouts learn more about the founder of their organization. Help bridge the knowledge gap between the Victorian and the present lifestyle. More importantly, bring attention to the mission of the Girl Scouts, “to build girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place.”

After taking the tour Girl Scouts receive a pin for their sash.
