Built 1900’s, as the L. Frank Saddlery Building that was four story and 70,000 square foot building is where they made custom saddles the largest saddlery west of the Mississippi, and by 1918 was one of the largest saddleries in the country. They made custom saddles for Theodore Roosevelt and his Rough Riders and for John Wayne. It was once served as a furniture store until the World Fair in the 1960s needed to accommodate the many anticipated visitors. It was converted into a four star hotel called La Mansion in 1968. In 2003, it went through extensive remodeling and is now called the Watermark Hotel & Spa and still offers luxury and premium services.
