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...more

This is a great historic site and one reason the nearby town of Ganado exists today. Creeping down the driveway and over the speed bumps is like taking a time machine back 150 years or so when there were no paved roads or Walmarts but...More

The Hubbell Trading Post is a true treasure – an operating trading post that still functions today. You won’t be able to “sneak” around this building as the floors have a wonderful creaking sound (being that old it should have a few creaks). Besides normal...More

I'm sorry the program was not of interest to you. Visitor center closures are not common and are typically brief, so I'm glad you were able to get in and get your book stamped.

The trading post area was very disappointing. Items in the sale room seemed high priced. I travel around AZ a good bit and have quite a few rugs. The main visitor center had displays that allowed the visitor to actually try to weave on a...More

The actual trading post is a small museum that features Navajo weaving and pictures of the Hubbell Family from the late 1800's. It is interesting that none of the narrative deals with the removal and death of Native Americans in that era of time. It's...More

This is a well preserved Trading Post from the early days of the 1870’s. So much history and art. Stop and peruse the rugs for something in every price range.

So OK, it’s a historic trading post, complete with barn, corrals, old store, etc, but it kind of glosses over the whole exploitation of natives bit. There is an exhibit referencing “The Long Walk,” a nice label for walking back home from attempted genocide. I...More

Thanks for your visit, Joan! I'm guessing you missed out on the ranger tour. The rangers here are Navajo and tell the whole story. You're right - some traders were not benevolent, but many were. Mr. Hubbell was loved in the local community, so much...More
