Summary

The University of New Mexico, in partnership with the National Park Service, is currently conducting research on the first trading post in Chaco Canyon, New Mexico.  Documentary research and test excavations indicate the Wetherill Homestead and Trading Post operated from the mid-1890s to the early 1900s.  The site functioned as a center for archaeological research, residence, ranching, and trade.  These findings have archaeological and historical implications related to late nineteenth and early twentieth century commerce, consumption, and the role of trading posts in the Southwest.
