Port Hueneme (pronounced “Wy-nee’mee”) is a seaside community in Ventura County, California. Port Hueneme is located 60 miles northwest of Los Angeles and 40 miles south of Santa Barbara. The City’s name derives from a Chumash word (Wene’mu) that means “resting place”. Today’s Port Hueneme is located halfway between two larger Chumash settlements, today’s Malibu and Ventura. The first post office in the community was in Wynema. When Thomas R. Bard laid out the town in 1872, he called it Hueneme. The name was changed to Port Hueneme after the Port of Hueneme was built in 1939.
