We reported back in September that moves were underway to declare Steve Jobs’ boyhood home as a historical site. The Los Altos Historical Commission voted unanimously on Monday to turn the home into a historical site. The move gives protected status to the single-story ranch house where Jobs and his family moved in 1968.
Commission members said the home is of historical significance, especially the garage, where Jobs and Steve Wozniak created the first 50 Apple 1 computers in 1976.
The partnership for what was then called “Apple Computer Co.” was established at the Crist Drive home. The company later relocated to Cupertino, CA.
Tourist regularly stop at the home to take photos. The goal of the historical designation is to preserve the home as it looked in the 1970s. Jobs’ stepmother, Marilyn Jobs, still lives in the house.
