Katherine Butterworth continued to be active in the community until her death in 1953. In her will, she created the William Butterworth Memorial Trust, and donated her home to the organization. Eventually her girlhood home, Overlook, which is now known as the Deere-Wiman House, was also donated to the Trust.
Today, according to Katherine Butterworth's wishes, the Trust offers the use of both homes and their adjacent carriage houses as meeting centers for local non-profit organizations that benefit the arts, health, education and recreation.
