Exciting things are underway at the Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace in Savannah, Georgia. Girl Scouts of the USA recently awarded Garbutt Construction Company the role of project manager for a complete renovation of the house museum, the first Girl Scout Headquarters and Savannah’s first National Historic Landmark. Located in the Downtown Historic District of Savannah, the Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace is significant for both its historic fabric and its role in the founding of the nation’s premier club for girls. Troops from all across the country make the trek down to Savannah to learn about the early days of scouting and admire the birthplace of the woman who started it all.
On Friday, February 21st, a delighted crowd gathered for a groundbreaking ceremony, marking the beginning of the renovation. Garbutt Construction is honored to have been selected for this momentous project with one of the city’s most beloved buildings. As a company with a soft spot for historic architecture, Garbutt is excited to take part in the Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace’s preservation history.
