During the 1860s, following floods and a severe drought which caused many rancheros to lose their lands, Los Angeles, California lost most of its residents and began to suffer racial tensions. Pio Pico, the last Mexican governor of California, mortgaged his vast San Fernando Valley holdings to build this grand hotel, the Pico House, in an effort to revive the city.
