In September we reported that Steve Jobs’ childhood home is on the road to become a historic site. Today, according to a report from Mercury News the home where Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak began building the first Apple computers was added to a list of historic sites in Los Altos.
The house, located at 2066 Crist Drive in Los Altos, California, was Steve Jobs’ home since the seventh grade. The Los Altos Historical Commission voted unanimously to designate Steve’s childhood home a “historic resource” because of its association with Jobs.
The vote is the culmination of a two-year effort by the commission to preserve the one-story, ranch-style home as it stands. Chairman Frank Bishop praised the work of his colleagues and city staff, which included extensive research and a property evaluation.
“Steve Jobs is considered a genius who blended technology and creativity to invent and market a product which dramatically changed many industries. His influence is expected to be felt by multiple generations forthcoming.”
