Baden-Powell House Foundation Laying

17th October 1959

Celebrations mark the laying of the foundation stone of Baden-Powell House by the World Chief Guide, Olave Baden-Powell (widow of Lord Baden-Powell).

The building was opened by the Queen two years later in 1961 and is still in use and owned by the Scouts Association.
