Andrew Low House Review

This residence was built in 1848 for Andrew Low, a native of Scotland and one of Savannah's merchant princes. The home later belonged to his son, William, who inherited his father's wealth and married his longtime sweetheart, Juliette Gordon. The couple moved to England and several years after her husband's death, Juliette returned to this house and founded the Girl Scouts here on March 12, 1912. The house has 19th-century antiques, stunning silver, and some of the finest ornamental ironwork in Savannah, but it is the story and history of the family—even a bedroom named after the family friend and visitor General Robert E. Lee—that is fascinating and well told by the tour guides.

    Andrew Low House Review

    We bought passes for the 2 Low houses plus the Davenport house. Great value, well led tours. This house had lots of nice furnishings.

    Another nice historic house

    A good historic home to visit, has some nicely preserved indoor and outdoor ornament and very attractive furnishings and accoutrement. The tour is comparatively brief compared to that in other such houses, but is still informative. A worthwhile place to visit.

    A Girl Scout must see

    Not to be missed for Girl Scouts optional for others. Very near St. John's so worth a trip if you're going there.
