Steve Jobs’ childhood home, where Apple was born, may soon become protected historical site

“The home where a young Steve Jobs built the first Apple computer may soon become a protected historical site,” Jackie Castillo reports for CNN.

“The seven-member Los Altos Historical Commission has scheduled a ‘historic property evaluation’ for the single-story, ranch-style home on Monday,” Castillo reports. “If the designation is ultimately approved, then the house on 2066 Crist Drive in Los Altos, California, will have to be preserved.”

“Jobs moved to the house with his foster parents as a 7th grader, and lived there through high school,” Castillo reports. “In the attached garage, he and Steve Wozniak — whom he met in high school — toiled to assemble the first 50 Apple 1 computers.”

MacDailyNews Take: Why the hell isn’t it a protected historical site already? It ought to already be on the National U.S. National Register of Historic Places, too.
