History

It all started back in 1854 when the Woodford Hotel and Saloon opened its doors and offered alcohol and gambling. The hotel became a stagecoach and Wells Fargo Pony Express Stop, drawing even more people to the action. As the call of the Gold Rush Days began to fade, the hotel was renamed the Pacheco Inn. Finally, in 1979, Lamar "Wil" Wilkinson purchased and improved the property, changed the name to the California Grand Casino... and the games of chance continue today. The California Grand Casino is the oldest continuously operating gambling establishment west of the Mississippi River.
