Steve Jobs’ home where Apple was born could become historical site


The Los Altos, California home where Steve Jobs and partner Steve Wozniak first began building computers may be turned into a protected historical site, according to a new report from CNN.

Apparently the Los Altos Historical Commission is looking to conduct a “historic property evaluation” on the house, which is located on 2066 Crist Drive in Los Altos, as soon as next Monday…

CNN reports:

“Steve Jobs is considered a genius who blended technology and creativity to invent and market a product which dramatically changed six industries — personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing and digital publishing,” according to the property evaluation.

“His influence is expected to be felt by multiple generations forthcoming.

Jobs moved to the house with his foster parents as a 7th grader, and lived there throughout high school. And it’s in its now-famous garage that he and Woz assembled the first 50 Apple 1 computers.

According to real-estate website Zillow, the the three-bedroom, two-bath house was built in 1952 and is valued at $1.5 million.
