Casa de Governor Pio Pico
California State Historic Landmark 127
#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.
