Information About Port Hueneme Real Estate
First settled by the Chumash Indians, Port Hueneme derives its name from the Chumash words “wene me,” which means Resting Place. In the 1500s, the area was explored by a Portuguese explorer named Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo, who also explored the Channel Islands. In 1871, Thomas Bard began a project to construct the Hueneme Wharf, which led to the growth of the town as we know it today. In 1939, the town’s name was officially changed to Port Hueneme before being incorporated in 1948. As stated by the United States Census Bureau, the population of Port Hueneme was 21,723 in 2010
The Port of Hueneme is the only deep water port between San Francisco and Los Angeles. The port is shared with Naval Base Ventura County and the Oxnard Harbor District. Naval Base Ventura County is a Navy base that was formed through the merger of Naval Construction Battalion Center Port Hueneme and Naval Air Station Point Mugu. With more than 19,000 personnel and 100 tenant commands, Naval Base Ventura County is the largest employer in Ventura County. The Oxnard Harbor District oversees the shipping and receiving of many products, including automobiles and agriculture.
