Childhood Home of Steve Jobs Could Become a Historical Site

The modest ranch home pictured below is the location where Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak started Apple Computer and built the first computers to bear the company name. It could soon become a protected historical site as well.


The unassuming suburban home is located in Los Altos, California and the seven-member Los Altos Historical Commission is now planning a historical property evaluation for the property. The home is located at 2066 Crist Drive in Los Altos, California and if turned into a historic property it would have to be preserved in perpetuity.

Jobs moved to the home when he was in seventh grade along with his foster parents and lived there through high school. The attached garage is where the first fifty Apple 1 computers were built. The home doesn’t look like it would be very expensive, but the three bedroom, two bath house, which was constructed in 1952, still manages to have a value of about $1.5 million according to the website Zillow, thanks to the ridiculously inflated real estate prices in the area.
