Fodor's Review

This early 19th-century town house, attributed to William Jay, was designated in 1965 as Savannah's first National Historic Landmark. "Daisy" Low, founder of the Girl Scouts, was born here in 1860, and the house is now owned and operated by the Girl Scouts of America. Mrs. Low's paintings and other artwork are on display in the house, restored to the style of 1886, the year of Mrs. Low's marriage. Droves of Girl Scout troops make the regular pilgrimmage to Savannah to

see their founder's birthplace and earn merit badges.

Good house to see, comparatively brief tour offered

A worthy historic house to see, a must for anyone who finds the Girl Scouts (which Low founded) of interest. Has a good amount of the family's personal furnishings and a pleasant garden area. The tour is relatively brief and a bit hurried compared to other such places, but the guide was very entertaining and engaging. Definitely worth a visit.

Girl Scout must see

Friendly tour guides. You see 2 floors of the house. Learn about Girl Scout history and family life in the late 1800's. Girl Scout souvenirs can be purchased here. Souvenir tip - because Girl Scout troops visit here there are many very inexpensive - historical and others - souvenirs to be purchased here. You don't have to pay admission to visit the gift shop which is worth a stop if you have kids looking for a nice but inexpensive momento.

only a must-see for current or former girl scouts

Typical tour of a beautiful home. However, being located in Savannah's historic district among so many charming historic structures makes it less memorable than it perhaps would otherwise be. A must see by those who hold the Girl Scouts dear, as evidenced by the number and enthusiasm of current and former Girl Scouts. Otherwise, visit only to kill time as there are a plethora of more captivating historical sites to tour.
