Hubbell Trading Post

  • Park (National/State/Provincial)

Fodor's Review

Sixty-three miles west of Gallup and en route to Canyon de Chelly, Hubbell Trading Post, in operation since 1878, is still an active purveyor of food staples, clothes, and Navajo rugs, much as it was when John Lorenzo Hubbell was running it (the National Park Service runs it now). With its creaking wood floors, dim lighting, and goods hanging from the rafters, Hubbell provides a palpable sense of what a post was like back in the day; the tours of the Hubbell homestead, complete with original decor intact, offer a glimpse into period home life of a trader of means (who had access to the best Native American handwork).
