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
