Pioneer Mill Co. Ltd
The Pioneer Mill Co. Ltd is a very special part of Maui's history, stemming all the way back to the 1860s. This company was the first plantation on Maui. During its peak, the company produced over 60K tons of sugar annually.
When the mill closed down for good in 1999, the Lahaina Restoration Foundation took over. By then, only the iconic smokestack and few crumbling buildings remained. The Lahaina Restoration Foundation worked quickly to preserve the smokestack and added a few commemorative touches.
Today, you can visit and see the Pioneer Mill Co. Ltd smokestack, a commemorative walkway, and exhibits that feature antique mill and cane equipment. Train aficionados, and children will appreciate the antique locomotives on-site.
