Pico House

Landmark in Downtown Los Angeles & Boyle Heights

South of Old Plaza are a number of historic buildings, including the 1870 home of Pio Pico, California’s last Mexican governor. It was the city’s first three-story building, and later a glamorous hotel with 21 parlors and two interior courtyards. At the time of writing the building is closed to the public while it undergoes a seismic retrofit.
