Hubbell Trading Post
The oldest continuously operating trading post on the Navajo Nation and the United States, Hubbell Trading Post is an important thread in the fabric of Navajo history. Established in 1876, this mercantile and others founded by John Lorenzo Hubbell came to be the lifeline of supplies for Navajos looking to re-establish themselves following the "Long Walk" of 1864. It was also a place for Navajos to meet and socialize in the days before the automobile.
Today, the Trading Post still sells groceries and dry goods, but it is also a National Historic Site, and features a bookstore, exhibits and rug weaving demonstrations. Take a journey back through time as you take part in a self guided tour of the grounds of the original 160 acre homestead, including the trading post, Hubbell home and visitor center.
