The Andrew Low House was designed by John Norris for Andrew Low – a wealthy cotton factor and eventual father-in-law of Juliette Gordon Low, the founder of the American Girl Scouts. The house was the home of Andrew Low and his family from 1849 to 1886. Juliette Gordon Low lived in the house beginning in 1886, following her marriage to Andrew Low’s son – William Mackay Low, until her death in 1927.

The house is now open to the public and serves as a museum, which is owned and operated by The National Society of The Colonial Dames of America in the State of Georgia.

The Andrew Low House is open Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday from 10:00 AM to 4:30 PM. On Sundays the museum is open from 12:00 PM to 4:30 PM. The final tour on all days begins at 4:00 PM. The house is closed on Thursdays and major holidays. Guided tours of the house are $8 per person.

Getting to the Andrew Low House from the Catherine Ward House Inn by foot is easy. From door to door, it takes as little as 10-14 minutes to walk between the two.
