  • This trading post has been on my to do list for a long time, and its also on the way to Canyon De Chelly. Once I walked in, I was transported back in time to see a glimpse of what it was like being in...  more »
  • Fascinating side trip on our drive around north eastern AZ. We stayed about 2 hrs. looking around and taking pictures. The items for dirty were prohibitively expensive though. Lovely pottery and blankets, great little store.

  • I used to work here as a ranger! Love the atmosphere and people! It's a great small park with a lot of history! If you have the time stop by, and check out the trading post and old barn! Don't forget to say hi to the retired park service animals! Even though they are old, they still have a home at the park!
  • The Hubbell Trading Post NHS shouldn’t just be a place to visit if you are nearby, this park deserves to be a destination. This historic place is remarkable as it still continues to be a trading post (mercantile) for the surrounding area around the city of Ganado. With its old worn wooden floors, it has operated since 1878 when it served the local Navajo Nation. It’s like stepping back in time. You can still buy items like sacks of local flour or local artisan jewelry or rugs. The experience of visiting this authentic 100+ year old trading post is incredible. Also on-site is a great visitor center. If you’re lucky you can catch a fantastic tour of the Hubbell House, the original family homestead. Its contents are original to the homestead (construction began in 1898) and contains the amazing family collection of southwestern native rugs, arts and crafts. This tour is another incredible experience taking the visitor back in time. Although entrance to the trading Post is free, there is a $5.00 fee for the guided tour of the John Hubbell home. Tour sizes are limited to groups of fifteen. If interested in southwestern American history, the Hubbell Trading Post is definitely worth a visit. Few places are as realistic as this exceptional historic site.
  • So glad to drive by the National Park sign while en route to Canyon De Chelly. We popped in to explore the Visitors Center, and when we went to the site we were shocked to find it's still a fully operational (and well curated!!) store! Such a cool stop to stretch your legs, take in some history and picked up a treasured souvenir from your trip!
  • Very cool place and the general store is still in operation as a general store, has some tourist gift stuff, but supplies the local population with groceries and supplies
  • Is a Historical Park under the Park Service. Located in Ganado Arizona. It was the home and trading post of Lorenzo Hubbell who was a trader back in the good old days. He is buried on top of a hill west of the trdg post. Certain items of groceries can be bought there, plus Navajo rugs, and jewelry. There is also a Visitor's Center located there.
