Pio Pico
The last Governor of California


Don Pio Pico’s family, may have been one of the eleven families said to have founded Los Angeles. They were one of many prominent families identified as “mulattos,” or of mixed racial heritage.   In 1845, Don Pio Pico became governor of California, representing the Mexican government during the United States annexation. As a politician, businessman, and soldier, Pico was involved in the affairs of California and neighboring Mexico. He built the first major hotel in Los Angeles, the Casa del Pico. The legacy of Pico is remembered in California. Pico Boulevard in Los Angeles, Pio Pico State Historic Park in Whittier, CA and the nearby town Pico Rivera, are all memorials to the last Mexican Governor of California. Let's celebrate the Hispanic Heritage month, as we highlight the cultural connections that exist between African Americans/Black people, with all people.
