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

Seeley Stable Museum contains western memorabilia donated by Roscoe E. (Pappy) Hazard. Historic photos, a Concord "mud wagon" stagecoach, a buckboard and a Studebaker Wagon and more are on the main floor. The upstairs loft has an extensive collection of Native American artifacts ? most of which are not specific to Southern California. Covered Wagons, a Blacksmith Shop and a Wood Shop are highlights of the back courtyard.

Roscoe E. Hazard (1881?1975) constructed many of the highways in southern California. Bridge 57-619, at Adams Avenue in San Diego county built in 1970, is named the "Roscoe E. Hazard Memorial Bridge."

Getting there:
The Seeley Stable Museum is located at the Old Town San Diego State Historic Park, San Diego Avenue at Twiggs Street, San Diego.
