The home, where Jobs and his foster parents moved in 1968, is currently owned by Patricia Jobs, Steve Jobs’s sister. The commission didn’t need her permission for the designation, although she could appeal it.

Steve Jobs, with help from his sister and Apple cofounder Steve Wozniak, built the first 100 Apple 1 computers at the home, according to the city’s evaluation.

Steve Jobs also wooed some of Apple’s first investors and in 1976, established the first partnership for Apple at the home.
