We enjoyed the old, authentic trading post, and my wife bought too Navajo dolls for our grandaughters at about 1/4 of what they cost online. Here we know they are authentic. The Visitors Center was nice but a bit too sterile.

There's a lot of history here. Not all of it good. Most of the facilities are staffed by Navajo who you will find are eager to share their experiences with you. This is not an easy access national park site, and we arrived too late in the day for a guided tour. The ladies in the mercantile were so sweet... More

At "face value," we found Hubbell Trading Post a great place for a "pit stop" during our drive from Chinle to Window Rock to Winslow. The grounds are not as interesting as the history of what actually happened here after the Long Walk of the Navajo. From some National Historic Site literature: Hubbell supplied merchandise and food to the Navajos... More

Our friends from Prescott Arizona had visited the site many years ago and wanted to see if it had changed. Much of the old buildings were still as they were, with a little modernization to accommodate the many visitors. Guided tours are available, but we did our own walking tour lasting about an hour. It was amazing to see the... More

We were surprised to hear people that work in the trading post speaking Navajo to each other. Somehow we Dutchies thought that language wasn't commonly used anymore. The trading post shop is nice to look at and many items are sold here against reasonable prices. We took the tour through the house and the lady guide has taught us so... More

We were so looking forward to visiting this place and although interesting, it wasn't as we thought. I had planned to get a Navajo rug, but I forgot to remortgage the house before I left home... and imagine the excess baggage fee! They are gorgeous. The Trading Post was like a small dairy or supermarket, then you walk through another... More

The Hubble Trading Post is a National Historical Site, but it is still an active trading post. It has a small operating grocery store and an exhibit area. There was a weaver making a rug when we were there. John Lorenzo Hubbell started the post in 1878 and was one of the leading traders in the Navajo Nation. The site... More

Wow, this is a great find!! If you have time, this is a must see. When you walk through the doors, you will feel like you stepped back in time. It was really neat to see the lady making blankets. They have tours of the Hubble House which is quite fascinating. Make sure you check out the ceiling!!! I really... More

The trading post is now operated by the National Parks Dept and has snack items, Native American produced blankets and materials on the post and the area as well as books by local authors. They were preparing for a huge "garage sale" to help support the post that was being put on by the "friends of the Hubbell Trading Post"... More

If you are traveling I-40, this Hwy 191 trip is very worthwhile if you enjoy the history of the area. And for those just passing thru - It's also a gr8 rest stop for food & potty. The Trading Post (a Natl Historic Site, so get your Natl Park passport stamped!) has been in business since 1868 and is now... More
