Steve Jobs’ Old House Now a Historical Site
2066 Crist Drive, Los Altos has now been officially designated as a “historical resource.”
The house (and more importantly, its garage) is better known as the place where Apple Computers was founded. Back in 1976, the home of Paul and Clara Jobs provided a roof for Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, and Ronald Wayne to form Apple. There, Jobs and Wozniak built the first Apple 1 computers and sold that first batch for $500 a piece to a store in Mountain View…and so the story goes.
After two years of review, the Los Altos Historical Commission, a 7-member group designated with recommending historical sites in the area, has approved the location’s spot on the historical registry.
According to Mercury News, the home was also where Jobs held talks with early investors.
The vote was unanimous.
“Steve Jobs is considered a genius who blended technology and creativity to invent and market a product which dramatically changed six industries – personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing and digital publishing. His influence is expected to be felt by multiple generations forthcoming,” said the property evaluation. “These significant events took place at the subject property.”
