The Basics

The trading post was built over a century ago after a suspension bridge—constructed across the Little Colorado River—opened up trade in the area. Today, you can still view the historic suspension bridge (no longer in use), as well as a native plant garden, behind the original trading post. A newer building hosts a vast collection of local art including Navajo rugs, turquoise and silver jewelry, dolls, trinkets, and much more.

The trading post serves as everything from a stopover for souvenir shopping to a home base for a stay in northern Arizona. It is also a popular stop on tours of the Grand Canyon, Antelope Canyon, and the Page area. Visit the trading post as part of a tour to learn more about the history of the area and local tribes.
