We went out of our way to come to the Hubbell Trading Post based on the reviews and were not happy that we did so. It was basically an overpriced little market with some rugs and rifles in the back. There was no one weaving rugs when we were there and the people working there were more interested in chatting... More

This is an awesome historical place to visit. Everyone there is so friendly and knowledgeable. We toured the inside of the post where there is so many things made by the Navajo Indians; jewelry, blankets, baskets dream catchers, etc. Seems the Navajo's are very talented in making silver jewelry. While we waited for the home tour to start, I had... More

This is a small well preserved trading post near Ganado, AZ. It is well maintained and offers guided tours of the buildings that comprise what was the main hub of the area.

This is a nice stop as one drives through Arizona. The history that one can learn by touring this place is amazing. They have nice bathrooms, a shop to purchase books and watch a Native weaving. The actual old building of the trading post was nice to go through. The items that were on display are modern and also what... More

Colorado Jim and I pulled into Hubbell Trading Post NHS one September morning after a very early get-up-and-go from Canyon de Chelly. We had to cover an awful lot of miles that day, so we were really pressed for time. I was primed to tour this little park and talk to the staff, not just because of the site’s fascinating... More

The Hubbell Trading post is a must see if you're traveling through northern Arizona. It still operates as the local store along with selling local rugs, artwork, and fine jewelry. Don't forget to visit the National Parks Service office while you are there.

We drove up to this area from the Painted Desert/Holbrook to see what the oldest Trading Post in this country looked like and what it had to offer. We had a wonderful tour of the facility from one of the volunteers and he offered us the home tour that is given at intervals by the rangers usually every two hours.... More

The Hubbell Trading Post is a good place to stop to get an image of the old west. Additionally, the store carries quality rugs plus southwestern recipe ingredients like blue-corn flour, etc. The prices and selections are good. The Mexican chocolates (to die for) are $2 cheaper here than on Amazon. I would love to bring my grandkids here.

As some other reviewers have stated, your first impression of the Trading Post may question whether there is really enough to see to warrant your stop. However, the tour of the house and the narrative from the guide describing this Post's role in history makes it very worthwhile. Don't miss this scheduled tour which reveals life in this outpost. We... More

We did not care for Hubbell Trading Post, and we are very surprised that it received a starred recommendation in our guide book (Fodor's or Frommer's, I can't remember which), and that it is so highly rated on Tripadvisor. Inside the post itself, the first room had convenience store items with some saddle equipment hanging from the ceiling. Two other... More
