Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace was originally built between 1818-1820 for Savannah mayor James Moore Wayne. In 1831 he sold the house to his niece, Sarah Stiles and her husband William Washington Gordon I. Gordon was the grandfather of Juliette Gordon Low and he was the founder of the Central of Georgia Railway. Juliette Gordon Low, founder of the Girl Scouts, was born in this house on Halloween in 1860. Juliette, known as Daisy, married William Low and moved into the Low family home on Lafayette Square.

In 1953 the Girl Scouts purchased the Gordon family home. The home has been restored and furnished with many original family pieces. The house was opened as a historic house museum in 1956.
