"The dedication of the new Edith Macy Conference Center in early 1980s represented a fresh, modern commitment to training and education by Girl Scouts of the USA," stated David Vogt, general manager of Edith Macy. "Since the 1920's, the 400-plus-acre property has been used by GSUSA to support their mission by training council members and executives from around the nation. Corporations and associations now enjoy the superb secluded setting, which was so visionary 25 years ago and works so well for meetings of many different types."
Since its dedication, Edith Macy Conference Center has provided corporate
executives with a year-round hilltop oasis to support high-quality training,
meetings and educational endeavors. This unique environment continues
to thrive as a modern corporate retreat as it celebrates its 25th anniversary.
The property, which is owned by Girl Scouts USA, was named for Edith Carpenter
Macy, who was the chairwoman of the Girl Scout National Board of Directors
from 1919 to 1925. Mrs. Macy's husband, Everit Macy, donated land
for the conference center as a living memorial to his wife.
