A national historic landmark to honor Juliette “Daisy” Gordon Low, the founder of the USA Girl Scouts.
The Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace Museum is the house in which Juliette was born, lived most of her life, and made the first step establishing the Girl Scout Movement.
The 200 years old building was rescued before demolitions with worldwide fundraising organized by the Girl Scout movement, that now owns and operates it as a museum of the legacy of the founder, and to educate and encourage young girls to take part in making the world a better place.
There are permanent exhibitions of art, historical documents, original Girl Scout artifacts and clothing’s from the early 19th century. The house itself is architecturally artistic, and some of it is believed to be Gordon Low’s own sculpturing.
Walk through the beautiful high ceiling rooms, and learn about the history of the Girl Scout movement and its founder. You can enjoy the “girls writing the world” interactive library featuring poems, plays, travel logs, memoirs, children’s books, and some of Juliette’s own writings.
There are also educational activities for groups of all ages, giving an authentic time travel experience to the 19th-century world of women’s discussions and thoughts.
