Friends of Oljato

The Oljato trading post in southeastern Utah has been identified as one of the 11 most endangered historic sites in the country.

The Utah Department of Cultural & Community Engagement says the 100-year-old trading post recently became a focal point for preservation efforts after decades of neglect.

The Oljato Chapter and the Navajo Nation are now hoping the destination will stimulate greater awareness and support for the project.

Officials say the deteriorated structure needs $1.3 million for rehabilitation in order to serve a new career as a community and tourist destination
