Maisel's Trading Post was built in the late 1930's by Maurice Maisel on route 66 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. By the 1940's the trading post became the largest of its kind. At one time over 300 American Indian craftsmen were employed onsite. The store closed after Mr. Maisel died in the 1960's. In the 1980's, Skip Maisel (Maurice Maisel's grandson) reopened the shop. It was listed in the National Resister of Historic Places in 1993.
