In 1921, Juliette Gordon Low came to Lookout Mountain and personally chose the location for Camp Juliette Low—a training facility for Girl Scout leaders, which would also provide a wilderness camping experience for young girls. The Juliette Low Lodge, which was constructed in preparation for the first camping season in 1922, is on the National Register of Historic Places and remains the center of camp activity. Take a free guided tour of Camp Juliette Low and let us share its wonderful history with you—see the historic lodge, explore the original 10 acres, and take in the natural beauty that attracted Juliette Low to this location.
Since 2012, historical walking tours of CJL have been offered in conjunction with the Mentone, Alabama Tour of Homes. In 2016, tours will take place Saturday, October 22, 11am to 4pm, and Sunday, October 23, 1pm to 4pm (Eastern Time). The guided walking tours last about 45 minutes and are free to the public. The walking tour highlights the 90-year history of the camp, and a number of historical photographs and documents will be available for viewing as well. Members of the Board of Trustees will be on-hand to lead the tours and answer your questions.
