The squeaky wooden floor greets your entry into the oldest operating trading post on the Navajo Nation. When your eyes adjust to the dim light in the "bullpen" you find you’ve just entered a mercantile. Hubbell's has been serving Ganado selling groceries, grain, hardware, horse tack, coffee and Native American Art since 1878.

Discover Hubbell Trading Post NHS, where history is made every day.

Hubbell Trading Post is the oldest continuously operated trading post in the southwest. While you are here, you can shop in the trading post for authentic Native-made art, walk around the old homestead which is still a living farm and ranch, and take a ranger-guided tour of the historic Hubbell home.

This is so much more than a trading post. This is a snapshot of a family with a dream. This is the home and property of a man who knew that cultures could work in harmony, to the benefit of everyone. This is a fascinating place. Please visit & find the lady ranger. She may show you the Hubbell family... More

Unique gem and slice of life in the Southwest. Very nice visitors center, lots of information of the people of the area, the history of the area and the Trading Post; and the kids even got to try some rug weaving. Amazing that the main trading post building is operating, really a step back in time. Some great crafts and... More

We had a great time stopping here. These smaller NPS units have a real knack for being very nice stops. The location is beautiful, no doubt why it was selected as a trading post location.

The Hubble Trading Post National Historic Site preserves the oldest continuously operated trading post on the Navajo Nation located in northeast Arizona. The trading post was established is 1878. Walking into the main building of the trading post is a journey back in time. The old wood floors squeak under your feet as your eyes adjust to the dim lighting... More

This is the perfect place to stop when you're travelling this part of the country. It is a welcome break from miles of dirt and rock, and an interesting artifact of the Old West that has *NOT* been Disneyfied. It is not a huge place - trading posts were not big. But you can see the remnants of a real... More

Talk with anyone whose home features an old authentic Navajo rug or rugged silver and turquoise jewelry and there is good chance they’ll tell you they or their parents “got it up at Hubbell”. This is THE authentic Trading Post. The real deal. Compare it to walking through a museum with Native American Art and being able to say I’d... More

If you are taking the beautiful route through Navaho country in Arizona, a stop at this trading post is mandatory. It still has a very good general store that specializes in Navaho arts and crafts and the outbuildings from the original settlement have been preserved and still in working order. The visitors' centre on site presents a good overview of... More

I didn't get to tour the whole thing, but I did get to check out the museum and buy something from the general store. It's definitely worth a visit if you're in the area. Very interesting history shown in the museum, and some beautiful items in the store.

This historical site is probably fine if you have the right expectations. This is more of museum than an actual trading post. The employees were very rude and clearly not happy about a family of 5 walking through the store. The antiques looked OK, but seemed over priced. If you stopped here expecting a free museum, you might feel better... More

It's a good stop if you're going by. In the back is old farming equipment that is neat to see. The blacksmith shop does not have much left in it, which I was a little disappointed since I wanted to see a period shop since I do some 'smithing. There is quite a few rugs for sale inside, and it's... More
