100th Anniversary of the Girl Scouts
Initially called the American Girl Guides, the first troop was comprised of 18 members. It was established in Savannah, Georgia on March 12, 1912 by Juliette Gordon Low. The organization changed its name to the Girl Scouts the following year. From the original 18, the girl scouts now boast 3.7 million members today, and the Girl Scouts of Northern California, which covers 19 counties, serves a membership of 47,000 girls and over 32,000 adult volunteers. On display at the museum are badges, uniforms, photos, and memorabilia commemorating the Girl Scout legacy in Humboldt County.
