Hubbell Trading Post National Historic Site

Hubbell trading post once served as a sort of business bridge between Native Americans and early Great Plains foragers from the east. Today, the trading post stands as an educational reminder of native cultures and a tool to understand the makeshift relationships conjured up in America’s youth. In the midst of change and westward expansion, the Hubbell trading post served as an important point of compromise.

Trading is not a distant memory here. You can enjoy food cooked by Native Americans, attend an auction run by local nonprofit organizations, and listen in on storytellers and singers who make appearances during the late August Old Time Trading Days. There are special programs to further explain Hubbell Trading Post and the many transactions that have taken place here. Sit down with tour guides who know the post’s extensive history or converse with local artists and craft makers who still reside here.
