Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace Campaign
In 1953, Girl Scouts of the USA saved a national treasure from demolition by purchasing the Wayne-Gordon House in Savannah, Georgia, the birthplace of Juliette Gordon Low, founder of Girl Scouting in the United States. Now designated as a National Historic Landmark, the Birthplace is the most visited house museum in the state of Georgia, and functions as a museum and educational center for all Girl Scouts and the public.
To fund several critical restoration projects, GSUSA launched a fundraising initiative, the Campaign to Restore the Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace, to guarantee the maintenance of this irreplaceable element of Savannah, Georgia, and Girl Scout history. Funding from the Birthplace Campaign allowed renovation work to be done on the staircase, elevator, and other areas.
Girl Scouts of the USA sincerely thanks those partners who gave their support through generous donations securing the future of this national treasure. The history and heritage of the Girl Scout Movement starts in Savannah at the Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace, where the past is now preserved to inspire today's children and adults.
