Andrew Low House

John S. Norris

This classically restrained house was built for Andrew Low, a wealthy Savannah merchant. His son William Low inherited the house a few months before marrying Juliette Gordon. After her husband died, Juliette founded the Girl Scouts of America in the reception room of this house.
