Steve Jobs’ Childhood Home May Become Historical Site

The place where all the magic started for Apple (AAPL) founder Steve Jobs may become a protected historical site in the near future.

CNN reports that the Los Altos, CA house where Jobs built his first computer with Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is being considered by the Los Altos Historical Commission as a landmark. The seven-member commission is evaluating the one-story house in order to determine whether or not the property should be considered a historical site.

Jobs moved into the house when he was a 7th grader and he lived there through high school. Wozniak and Jobs spent their free time in an attached garage where they built the first 50 Apple 1 computers and eventually built Apple Computer Co. in 1977.

According to the property evaluation, Steve Jobs is a genius who revolutionized several industries including personal computers, music, phones and digital publishing.
