Steve Jobs' Childhood Home is Designated a Historic Resource

The Los Altos Historical Commission unanimously voted to designate Steve Jobs' childhood home as a 'historic resource' and place it on the city's historic resources inventory, reports Mercury News.

The vote is the culmination of a two-year effort by the commission to preserve the one-story, ranch-style home as it stands. Chairman Frank Bishop praised the work of his colleagues and city staff, which included extensive research and a property evaluation.

"The documentation looks very complete -- better than some of the books as far as accuracy goes," Bishop said.

The commission did not need the permission of Steve Jobs' sister, Patricia Jobs, who is the current owner. However, she could appeal the decision.

If renovations to the home are ever sought, an extra layer of review will allow the commission to make a recommendation to city council on the proposed changes.

The original evaluation was corrected at the request of Patricia Jobs.

The home is located on Crist Drive in Los Altos. You can check out some photos below...

This is ridiculous. Unless this is also the same garage where they built the first computer, it's pathetic to sanctify the man this way. The garage is significant considering that's where Apple was born, and certainly it has become something significant in the area. But Steve's childhood home? Really?!?
