Apple Co Founder Steve Jobs Childhood Home May Become Historical Site

Apple co-founder Steve Jobs passed away nearly two years ago, leaving quite the legacy behind. Apple became a huge company under Jobs’ guidance, which is why his childhood home in Los Altos, California is being considered to become a historical site.

The seven-member Los Altos Historical Commission has scheduled a “historic property evaluation” to take place on Monday for Jobs’ ranch-style childhood home. If approved, the house will then have to be preserved at its 2066 Crist Drive location.

Jobs didn’t live in the home that’s being considered for historical preservation all his life, instead, he and his foster parents moved there when he was in the seventh grade and lived there through his high school years. The garage which is attached to the home is the location where both Jobs and Steve Wozniak built the first fifty Apple 1 computers, making this location quite an important one in the tech world.

The home doesn’t look like much as it’s listed as a three-bedroom, two-bath home built in 1952, but according to real-estate website Zillow, it’s valued for $1.5 million. Considering its legacy, we’re surprised Jobs didn’t decide to own his childhood home himself. Either way, we’ll have to wait and see if the historical committee will deem this property a piece of history, or it’s just a house.
