Hubbell Trading Post

Visitor Information

Navajo, New Mexico 87505

Hubbell Trading Post is the oldest continuously operated trading post on the Navajo Reservation. The trading post was purchased by John Lorenzo Hubbell in 1878, who established himself as one of the leading traders of his time. He also collected western and Native American art, which are displayed in his furnished house on the site.

The trading post is still active, trading with members of the Navajo, Hopi, Zuni and other tribes, just as members of the The Hubbell family did for 89 years until it was sold to the National Park Service in 1967. It is now operated by a non-profit organization that maintains the trading traditions the Hubbell family established.

Hubbell Trading Post National Historic Site consists of the original 160-acre homestead, including the trading post, family home and Visitor Center as the primary attractions.
