Founded in 1917, Gordonston is Savannah's oldest bedroom community. The area used to be part of the Gordon family farm. The family was well-to-do and Gordon Low's father was a railroad magnate. Juliette would go on to found the Girl Scouts of America.
On July 20, 1926, the cornerstone was laid for the gates of Gordonston Memorial Park, and the park was dedicated to Willie and Nellie.
In the cornerstone Daisy [Juliette Gordon Low] placed the tools she had used in making the gates, and the stone pillars in which the gates are set have a daisy carved on each column.
Gordonston is Savannah's oldest "bedroom community." It was on a trolley line that led into downtown making it an easy commute.
