Welcome to the historic Anderson House

Our lovely building was built in 1896 as a neighborhood elementary school and has been used as a gathering place for Girl Scouts since World War II.

During the 1970s Arnold L. Anderson donated funds to support the building for its continued use by local Girl Scouts.

The house is owned and operated by a board of directors made up of current and former Girl Scout leaders and community volunteers.

We are supported by the generous donations of local businesses, civic organizations, and individuals, as well as from our frequent fundraisers.

To find out more about Girl Scouting in our area, visit our council’s website here.

You can also check out the history of the Anderson House in a 30-minute episode of: “Once Upon a Time in Attleboro”.  You can watch it here. It features Dee DeForest Cortese,  past President of the Anderson House Board of Directors.  You might even see someone you know!
