Home where Steve Jobs built first Apple computers now an historic site


Steve Jobs’ childhood home in Los Altos, California has been deemed an historic site after a unanimous vote by the Los Altos Historical Commission. The home, which is still owned by Jobs’ sister Patricia and occupied by his stepmother Marilyn, played an important role in the development of early personal computing.

It was in the garage attached to 2066 Crist Drive that Jobs, Steve Wozniak, and others would set in motion a computer building scheme that would eventually evolve into Apple as we know it today. The house will now be preserved as an official landmark, with any renovations or remodeling to occur only under approval of the city.

The Los Altos Historical Commission felt it important to protect the “humble home” where  Jobs lived starting in 7th grade. The vote came after two years of research and property evaluation.
