The Girl Scout History Project is operated by historian and political scientist Ann Robertson. It is independent of the Girl Scout Council of the Nation’s Capital although blog posts often feature events or memorabilia from the Nation’s Capital collection.
The Girl Scout Council of the Nation’s Capital established an Archives and History Committee in 1983 to acquire, develop, and maintain archival collections to ensure the preservation of materials which document the founding, development, organization, management, and achievements of the Girl Scout Council of the Nation’s Capital.
The all-volunteer committee meets in Frederick on Tuesdays. Programs are held on weekends and the Frederick Center is open for visitors on Sunday afternoons.
