The Hiestand House Museum is benefiting from Taylor Circuit Judge Dan Kelly's former campaign fund.
State law spells out just how Kelly, who was appointed to the judgeship last year by Gov. Steve Beshear, is to close out his former senatorial campaign account. One of those ways is by donating the money to a charity.
And, thanks to Kelly's wife Darlene's ancestry, the Hiestand House is getting a portion of that money.
According to the Kentucky Registry of Election Finance, Kelly had $105,331.51 in his fund on Nov. 12, 2009.
