Buyer plans new hotel and wants to turn McMinnville campus into top tourist destination in Oregon

McMINNVILLE -- Jeopardized properties on the Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum campus appear to be safe after a sale has been completed that satisfies the property owner’s bankruptcy filed early this year.
On Aug. 19, the Falls Event Center completed its purchase of several parcels and additional assets on the Evergreen campus.
The $10.9 million sale transfers the Wings & Waves Waterpark, the chapel building, the space museum, a site long planned for development of a hotel, and other vacant parcels in the vicinity of the campus, to the Utah-based event center company.
Although the space museum is being transferred, museum officials say they’re confident the new owner will be a “supportive and collaborative landlord,” and they stress it will operate as it has in the past.
“We’ll continue to remain as tenants on campus and the campus will be kept whole as a museum entity,” museum executive director Ann Witsil said last week. “We will not be changing, in fact we’ll be really ramping up our focus on the education component of the museum.”
