Childhood Home of Steve Jobs May Become a Historical Site
The late Apple co-founder is widely acknowledged to have helped change the way much of the world interacts with computers and now Jobs’ childhood home could become a historically preserved site in order to honor his accomplishments. Jobs’ family home, the location where he took part in the construction of the first Apple computer, may soon become a protected historical site, according to CNN
. The Los Altos Historical Commission is looking to conduct a “historic property evaluation” on the property, with a decision to follow soon after.
The Los Altos location, at 2066 Crist Drive, would see preservation if the commission decides it is worthy of the historical site designation. Jobs moved to the house with his foster parents as a 7th grader and lived there throughout high school. Jobs and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak ended up building the first 50 Apple 1 computers in the house’s garage before selling them to Paul Terrell’s Byte Shop in Mountain view, California for $500 a piece.
As of right now, the three-bedroom, two bathroom ranch-style house which was built in 1952 has a current estimated value of $1.5 million.
