The Girl Scout First Headquarters was built in 1848 as the carriage house to the Andrew Low House. Juliette Gordon Low, founder of the Girl Scouts, converted the carriage house into the Girl Scout Headquarters shortly after she founded Girl Scouting in March of 1912 in Savannah, Georgia. It was willed to the Girl Scout Council of Savannah upon her death in 1927.

The Wayne-Gordon House was built between 1818-1821 for Mayor James Moore Wayne, later Supreme Court Justice. The house is restored to a documented 1886 appearance, a year of extensive changes to the house. Guided tours explore the amusing and lively stories of four generations of one American family, the Gordons.
