Steve Jobs’ Family Home May Soon Become A Protected Historical Site

Steve Jobs’ childhood home, where he built the first Apple computer, may soon become a protected historical site, according to CNN. Steve’s single-story, ranch-style house in Los Altos, California is scheduled for a “historic property evaluation” by the seven-member Los Altos Historical Commission later today. If approved, Apple co-founder’s family house on 2066 Crist Drive in Los Altos will have to be preserved.

Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak built the first Apple computer at the Los Altos house during the mid-’70s, where Jobs moved with his foster parents as a 7th grader and lived through high school. In the attached garage, he and Steve Wozniak assembled the first 50 Apple 1 computers, which were sold for $500 each. Less than a year later, in 1977, Apple was formally established and moved its operations to nearby Cupertino.

“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.”

A version of the ranch-style house also appears in the recent ‘jOBS’ biopic with Ashton Kutcher playing the role of Steve Jobs.
