Terminated a Trust and Removed all Restrictions Tied to a Historic Building
We represented the Kentucky Mansion Preservation Foundation, which was seeking to terminate the trust and end the restrictions tied to Helm Place. A designated landmark, Helm Place was once the home of Emilie Todd Helm, half-sister to first lady Mary Todd Lincoln, and the home had been left to the foundation in a trust. Originally the foundation had hoped to turn the structure into a museum, but that was no longer economically realistic. Our attorneys successfully obtained a termination of the trust, clearing the way for the potential sale of the property.
