Puunēnē is an unincorporated community in the central part of Maui, Hawaii, near Kahului. Although the land in that area is fairly level, the words Puu nēnē mean "nene goose hill" in Hawaiian. With a population of around 50, Puunēnē's primary industry is growing, harvesting and processing sugar cane.The nonprofit Alexander & Baldwin Sugar Museum is housed in the former residence of the superintendent of Puunēnē Sugar Mill, which the Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar Company (a division of Alexander & Baldwin) has operated across the street since 1901. Its mission is "to preserve and present the history and heritage of Hawaii's sugar industry, and the multi-ethnic plantation life which it engendered." Also located in Puunēnē is the Puunēnē School, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.Puunēnē's Zip code is 96784. The mill is located at, just east of Mokulele Highway, Hawaii Route 311.About three miles to the south of Puunēnē is the site of a former Naval Air Station (1940–1947),. An old runway is now used as a drag strip for Maui Raceway Park.
