Every Strand Tells a Story


Affectionately known as Hubbell’s, the Western National Parks Association-operated Hubbell Trading Post is the oldest continuously operating trading post in the American Southwest. For generations, Hubbell’s has been “the” place to buy top-quality Navajo rugs and jewelry. The West’s history, culture, and tradition still live here. Today, trader Irvin Jones will weave us a tale of the history of Hubbell Trading Post and Navajo weaving.
