Located on beautiful Lafayette Square, just across the square from the The Cathedral Basilica of St. John the Baptist, the Andrew Low House Museum is a nationally known 1840's historic home open to the public.
The house is carefully restored and showcases an important collection of furniture, paintings, glass, and other decorative arts. A historic garden and courtyard for relaxing are also part of site's unique charm.
Juliette Gordon Low, founder of the Girl Scouts, was Low's daughter in-law and lived in the home for a significant period up until her death. The country's first Girl Scout Headquarters was the original carriage house of the home.
