Juliette Gordon Low, founder of Girl Scouts of the USA, was born on October 31, 1860, in Savannah, Georgia and was affectionately known as "Daisy." The building is owned by the Girl Scouts of the USA, and is a popular historic house museum for the general public and for Girl Scouts. It is commonly known as "The Birthplace".

in 1912, Low founded the Girl Scouts. She telephoned her cousin, saying "Come right over! I've got something for the girls of Savannah, and all America, and all the world, and we're going to start it tonight." She recruited girls all over town, on the steps of churches and the synagogue, and the daughters of friends and acquaintances.

The Birthplace is open for tours for the general public year 'round.
