History of Gordonston

A Hidden Gem

Gates of Gordonston


It all started here


Savannah’s Gordonston neighborhood was founded in 1917 in honor of William Washington Gordon III, brother of Girl Scouts founder, Juliette Gordon Low. This 80-acre tract of land is said to be the highest ground in Savannah. It was inherited by W.W. Gordon III and his siblings, whose family was earlier responsible for the establishment of the Central of Georgia Railroad. Gordonston is one of Savannah’s original streetcar suburbs as it was located on the Thunderbolt streetcar line. It now contains 238 homes built primarily in the 1920’s - 1950’s.

Spacious and Green

Dedicated Park

The seven-acre Juliette Gordon Low Park was dedicated in 1926 with an endowment from its namesake. The park is fully enclosed by an iron fence whose original gates were designed and built by Juliette Gordon Low. A fund was established by her to maintain the park into perpetuity for the use of Gordonston residents and especially for its children. The park also contains a playground.

New Cottage

The cottage in the park was built in 1948 by Union Camp Corporation and donated to the Girl Scouts who have been holding meetings in it for generations. Resident-sponsored, cottage rental is available by visiting
