Teec Nos Pos Trading Post
The Teec Nos Pos Trading Post
was established on the Navajo Nation in 1905. It has faithfully maintained the
old fashion trading post traditions. The
community name of Teec Nos Pos (pronounced Tease-Nhas-phas) has a Navajo meaning of
"circle of cottonwood trees".
The Location of the Teec Nos Pos Trading
Post is on the Navajo Nation, in an area known as the Four Corners, which is
named for the point were the four States of Arizona, Colorado, Utah, and New Mexico meet. The Teec Nos Pos
Trading Post is conviently located to many unique and must see Attractions.
The trading post has a rich History. In
1905 the original trading post was established in a canyon on the north side of the
Carrizo Mountains. In 1959 the trading post was destroyed by fire. The first highway in the area was in the planning
stage, so the post was relocated to an area close to the
proposed highway. It was a succesful gamble and this is were the current Teec Nos Pos Trading Post
John McCulloch took over ownership and
residence at the Teec Nos Pos Trading Post. He has maintained
the tradition and relationship with the Navajos as was
done by the original owners, the Noel
and Foutz families.
