Hubbell Trading Post

The Hubbell Trading Post is one of the oldest continually operating trading posts in the Navajo Nation. A Ranger Station is located here. Visitors will find demonstrations of rug weaving, various exhibits, as well as native arts and crafts and a bookstore. Tours of the Hubbell home are offered. Visitors will hear both the Navajo and English languages spoken, since it is still an active trading post. Be sure to check out the "Bullpen" (main trading area) as well as the Rug Room.

Location: About one mile due west of Ganado, Arizona, and 5.5 hours northeast of Phoenix on the Navajo Nation. The Hubbell Trading post can be accessed by either 264 (East-West) or 191 (North-South).

History: John L. Hubbell moved here in 1878 with his wife and began trading coffee, cloth, and other items with the Navajo. Over the years Hubbell's operation expanded to include 30 trading posts. He died in 1930 and is buried on a nearby hill next to his wife, with a close friend also buried nearby.
