#127 Casa de Governor Pio Pico
Following the Mexican War Pio Pico, last Mexican governor, acquired the 9000 acre Rancho Paso de Bartolo and built here an adobe home that eventually was destroyed by the floods of 1883-84. His second adobe casa, now known as the mansion, represents a compromise between Mexican and American culture. While living here the ex-governor was active in the development of American California.
