A Girl Scout legacy.

Longue Vue shares a special connection with the Girl Scouts. Augusta Rosenwald,
mother of Longue Vue founder Edith Stern, was a member of the Executive Board
of the National Girl Scouts of American from 1921 to 1928. We are happy
to continue this legacy by welcoming Girl Scouts to explore
and learn at Longue Vue.
