About

On WeddingWire since 2022

The House on Helm is Central Kentucky’s preeminent elevated event venue for gathering to celebrate life’s joys and milestones. Situated uniquely in the historic downtown Elizabethtown residential neighborhood, it is nestled away from the bustle of the town square but within blocks of the expanding revitalization taking place in this richly distinctive city in the heart of the Bluegrass State. The historic home was built circa 1812 by Major Benjamin Helm, the son of one of the three founding families of Elizabethtown and a prominent and influential businessman, politician, and banker. He and his wife, Mary Edwards Helm, were known to be lavish entertainers, and it is fitting that the home is once again hostess to joyous celebrations.

Facilities and Capacity

At the House on Helm, you and your partner will discover the perfect location for your magical celebration. The current owners purchased the house in 2017 and restored it to reflect a mix that honors the historical value and a modern aesthetic. The exterior façade pays homage to its original architecture, while the interior reflects an updated canvas that marries elegant and eclectic into a sophisticated palette. Whether you're planning an outdoor ceremony or intimate reception, this stylish estate will create a stunning backdrop for your milestone occasion. Out on the front porch, lawn or in the back gardens, you and your partner can say "I Do". This tranquil ceremony site is framed by leafy trees and the striking red brick of the home, creating a comfortable and sheltered spot for your vow exchange. After the ceremony, you and your guests can enjoy cocktail hour on one of the many terraces or in the bar parlor before dinner is served in the new event room, The Garden Room. Once inside, your eyes will be drawn to features such as the curated art collection, textured wallpapers, elegant furnishings, and chandelier lighting which add a luxurious finish to every room.

Services Offered

The House on Helm welcomes you and your guests home to relish in the magic of making lasting memories in a space exquisitely and thoughtfully designed for your every need. Whatever your vision may be for your celebration, the owners will warmly welcome you and your guests. For more information on services, please feel free to contact them with your inquiries.
