“Pío Pico State Historic Park is the site of Pío Pico Mansion, the final home of Pío de Jesus Pico, the last Governor of Alta California under Mexican rule. Pio Pico bought the Rancho Paso de Bartola, an 8,900-acre Mexican land grant, in 1850. On it he built his home, a chapel, a saloon, and guesthouses. He hosted regular fiestas. The ranch included half of the area that would become Whittier. Pio Pico fell victim to a real estate scam and in 1892 he was evicted from his homestead. He died in poverty.”
