Steve Jobs’ childhood home may become historical landmark


The house where Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak built the first Apple computer may become a historical landmark. According to CNN, the Los Altos historical Commission will evaluate the property for its historical value and will decide it deserves to be preserved.

The house on 2066 Crist Drive in Los Altos, California was home to Jobs and his foster parents during the 1960s and 1970s. Job lived there while he attended junior high school and Homestead High School. It was in the attached garage that Jobs and Wozniak designed and built the first 50 Apple 1 computers in 1977. The house was built in 1952 and is valued at S1.5 million, according to Zillow.

Shortly after Jobs and Wozniak sold their first computers, the company moved its headquarters to Cupertino. The company plans to expand its presence in Cupertino with the construction of a large, circular corporate headquarters.
