Girl Scout Council Patch History (part 1)

Text descriptions of the different council patches and the dates they were available.

If you're looking for images of the patches, see any of the appropriate links on my patch trading page.

This page contains the first half of the alphabet (even though it's all text, the whole thing took too long to load.) I've added a page for the second half of the alphabet to this site. THIS page includes states beginning with the letters A through M.

If you don't find the council you're looking for on these pages, it's probably an extinct council. Go to Jennifer's Girl Scout and Guide Patch & Silk & Crest Trading Headquarters, where she has a list of extinct councils, and (where she could get one) pictures of their patches.
