AAA Editor Notes

Andrew Low House, 329 Abercorn St. at Lafayette Sq., was built by Andrew Low, a wealthy cotton merchant said to be the richest man in Savannah at the time this three-story Italianate residence was built in 1849. At the time of Low's death his son William inherited the house and shortly thereafter married Juliette Gordon. It was from this stuccoed brick house, noted for its well-proportioned rooms with plaster cornices, carved woodwork and crystal chandeliers, that widowed Juliette later organized the Girl Scouts of the USA in 1912. Guests have included Gen. Robert E. Lee and novelist William Makepeace Thackeray. A historic garden is on the grounds. Guided tours are available. Time: Allow 30 minutes minimum.
