Steve Jobs’s Calif. home gets historic designation

LOS ALTOS, Calif. — The Silicon Valley home where Apple cofounder Steve Jobs grew up and built some of his first computers is now on the city’s list of historic properties.

The historical commission in the city of Los Altos voted unanimously for the historic designation on Monday night, the Palo Alto Daily News reported. Any proposed renovations to the modest, ranch-style home now require additional review.

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.
