The Lorenzo Hubbell Trading Post and Warehouse was built in 1917. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2002. The building is located in the western part of the historic center of the city of Winslow, Arizona.[2] It currently serves as the Winslow visitor center.

History[edit]

The building was constructed by Hubert and Richardson in 1917. It was bought by Don Lorenzo Hubbell in 1921 and turned into a trading post for goods exchange with Navajo. It was one of about thirty trading posts owned by Hubbell and his family, and one of the two wholesale stores (another one was located in Gallup, New Mexico).[3]

In 2002, it was restored and became a western gateway to the Winslow Historic District.[2]
