|After Alfred (Albert) Lewis Seeley purchased the LaCasa de Bandini and converted it into the Cosmopolitan Hotel he built a stable barn next to it. The building currently on the site is a reconstruction of the original.
Born in Illinois in 1822 and a stagecoach driver since the age of 17, Seeley started the United States Mail Stage line. The Cosmopolitan Hotel and stables served as a depot for that stage line
