Girls Scouts were organized in Bartlett in 1929. The troop consisted of seven girls under the leadership of Estella Schnadt.
Several pages in Schnadt's personal photo album are devotes to pictures of her Bartlett Girl Scouts. This picture is identified as being taken in 1931 while the troops was on a hike. Schnadt is in the back row third from right. Unfortunately none of the other scouts are identified in any of the images. Schnadt appreciated the outdoors and took her troop on numerous camping trips and other adventures that involved the great outdoors.
