At first blush, visiting the birthplace of the founder of the Girl Scouts may not appeal to those outside the 10-year-old girl demographic. But don't judge too soon. The Regency-style house, fully restored and furnished to look as it did in its 19th-century heyday, is fascinating in its own right. Plus, Ms. Low's life is interesting even to those not interested in badge-earning or cookie-selling. Born in 1860, the spunky Southern belle traveled the world despite being nearly deaf, and founded the Girl Scouts on a whim in 1912. The organization now counts more than 2.5 million members. Sorry, the museum does not sell Thin Mints.
