The Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace, affectionately known as the 'Wayne-Gordon House,' is one of the most significant points of interest in the historical city scape of Savannah, Georgia.

Best known as the early home of Juliette Gordon Low, the founder of the Girl Scouts of the USA, this enchanting house-turned-museum illuminates her visionary spirit and enduring legacy. With its setting in the heart of Savannah's downtown district, it offers an intriguing and enlightening experience for history buffs, Girl Scouts, and anyone curious about one of America's most influential women.

Established as a museum in 1953, this bravura Regency mansion dates back to 1818. It narrates the story of Juliette Gordon Low, who was born here on October 31, 1860, and later founded the Girl Scout Organization in 1912. Lavished with many of the original 19th-century furnishings and family heirlooms, it encompasses more than just a personal history of Juliette Gordon Low. It chronicles the rich tapestry of Savannah's history, the American South, the Gordon family, and the universal Girl Scout Movement.

Visiting the Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace is like stepping back in time. The guided tour begins in the exquisite parlor, adorned with intricate gold work, hand-carved marble fireplaces, and period-specific décor that reflects the wealthy lifestyle of Savannah's bygone era. The subsequent rooms house staggering collection of Victorian-era antiques, Juliette's personal artefacts, and various Girl Scout memorabilia. A beautifully restored garden, with colorful and fragrant blooms, offers a tranquil retreat in the middle of the bustling city. From Juliette's artwork to the original Girl Scout uniforms, every piece contributes to the narrative of an indomitable woman whose monumental work has shaped the lives of millions of girls across the globe.

One of the highlights of the museum is Juliette's childhood bedroom, presented in great detail according to her own written description from a 1886 letter. The room captures the personal space and sentimental aspirations of a young girl who grew to be a trailblazer. Additionally, the home expresses a pervasive sense of the strong women who inhabited it. It’s a poignant reminder of the progress that's been made and the work that still needs to be done for gender equality.

The Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace isn't just a museum – it's a lesson in history, a paean to women's empowerment, and a beacon of inspiration. This beautifully restored, historically significant home offers a deeply engaging visit for all ages. Whether you are a Girl Scout, a history enthusiast, or simply an admirer of strong women who make a difference, a visit to this birthplace museum promises to be an enlightening and evocative experience.
