Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace, Savannah, GA. Built in the Federal style for Savannah Mayor James Moore Wayne, the house was completed in 1821. In 1831, it was purchased by Wayne’s niece, Sarah Stites Gordon, and her husband. Their son, William W. Gordon II, expanded the house with an added story and side porch in the Italianate style in 1886. The next generation of Gordons included daughter Juliette, who was born in the house and would found the Girl Scouts in 1912. The National Historic Landmark has been restored to its appearance during Juliette Gordon Low’s childhood and is operated as a museum house.
