Overview
More
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.
