The hallowed home where Steve Jobs co-founded Apple could become a protected historical site. According to CNN, the Los Altos Historical Commission is closing in on the end of a nearly two-year review of the house in Los Altos, California, a city located near the San Francisco Bay Area. If such a designation is bestowed on the single-story, ranch-style home, it will have to be preserved for all eternity.
Almost as famous as Jobs himself, the home, located on 2066 Crist Drive, is known for being the place where Apple was born. In it, Jobs, Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne founded what is now one of the largest consumer electronic companies on the planet; most recently Apple released its iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c to incredible fanfare. Wozniak actually assembled the first 50 Apple 1 computers in the home’s attached garage, which were then sold to a nearby shop in Mountain View.
The house is over 50 years old now, but will be preserved for anyone who wants to drive by and see where Apple started. The famous location was recently featured in the Steve Jobs biopic “Jobs,” which featured Ashton Kutcher in the lead role.
