§ 57-21. May hold personal property through trustees.

Any such association may acquire personal property for its use, and hold the same and any such as it may have heretofore acquired, through the intervention of trustees in whom the legal title shall be vested for its benefit; and the circuit court of the county, or the circuit court of the city, in which the meetings of such association are usually held, or the judge of such court in vacation, may, on the application of the proper authorities of the association, from time to time, appoint trustees, either where there were or are none, or in place of former trustees, and change those so appointed, as may seem to the court or judge to be proper; and the legal title to such personal property shall be vested in the trustees, for the time being, and their successors, for the use and benefit of the association.
