No Agreement Reached for Pearson Museum

No Agreement Reached for Pearson Museum

After 14 months of negotiations, talks have broken down between two Vancouver, Wash., history organizations, leaving Pearson Air Museum and the Pearson Field Education Center separate but still open for business.

The National Park Service operates the Vancouver National Historic Reservewhere Pearson, one of the nation’s oldest operating airfields, is situated. The Fort Vancouver National Trust, which ran the air museum until park officials took over managing it, created the education center as a breakaway project in a nearby hangar.

“We are profoundly disappointed that we have failed to reach agreement with the National Park Service,” said Steve Horenstein, chairman of the trust, in a news release. The park service will continue to operate the free museum, while the trust will operate the nearby education center, the organizations said in separate news releases Friday.
