HISTORIC GEORGIA COUNCIL

About Us

Welcome to Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia!

Our council serves girls in 125 counties and includes service centers in Athens, Macon, and Savannah. Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia is rich in heritage and purpose. The council extends from the North Georgia mountains to the Okefenokee and from the Atlantic coast to the Chattahoochee Valley. GSHG is home to approximately 20,000 Girl Scouts, and is the historic home of our founder, Juliette Gordon Low. "Daisy" founded Girl Scouts on March 12, 1912 in Savannah, Georgia, where her birthplace and the historic First Headquarters still welcome thousands of Girl Scouts every year.

Girl Scouts of Historic Georgia is brimming with wonderful resources and places to explore! We are honoring the legacy of Juliette Gordon Low as we offer Georgia’s girls the very best in leadership development.
