Product description:

 

Originally purchased by German financier Claus Spreckels and later bought by Alexander & Baldwin and Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar Co., the mill in Puunene, Maui opened in 1901. Puunene ("goose hill" in Hawaiian) was once a thriving plantation town, home to waves of immigrants, including Portugese, Puerto Rican, Japanese and Filipino.

The camps that housed those thousands of sugarcane employees are gone, but the sugar mill remains the largest working sugar factory in the islands today.

The nonprofit Alexander & Baldwin Sugar Museum is housed across the street from the Puunene Sugar Mill, in the former residence of the superintendent. 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."

In this view, the landmark mill is brought alive through the brush strokes of talented artist Jack Wilson.
