Steve Jobs’ Childhood Home Gets Historical Site Consideration

Steve Jobs' Childhood Home Considered for Historical Preservation(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Steve Job’s childhood home may soon receive a historical protection status.

According to a report from CNN on Monday, the residence in Los Altos, California will be evaluated by the Los Altos Historical Commission.

The house, which is located at 2066 Crist Drive in Los Altos, was the site where Jobs and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak constructed the first Apple I computers (in the garage).

Jobs originally moved to the location when he was in the seventh grade.

The residence was famously depicted in the 1999 film Pirates of Silicon Valley and remains an area of interest for Apple fans looking to learn more about the company’s history.

“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,” states the property evaluation, according to CNN.

According to a report from The Register, the property must meet the criteria that it is “associated with the lives of persons important to the local, California or national history.”

Real-estate website Zillow estimates the worth of the home to be at $1.5 million.
