When I went to California last year, one of the places I stopped to visit was the childhood home (pictured above) of Apple co-founder and former CEO, Steve Jobs. Well, now it seems that this very place is going to be named a “historical site” by the Los Altos Historical Commission, meaning that it would be preserved as a part of history. It will be performing a “historical property evaluation” in order to determine whether or not it will be designated as a historical site. Personally, I think it should be unanimously voted to make this place a part of history, as it certainly has been.
In the garage of the house pictured above is where Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak sat down to build the first 50 Apple computers – aptly named the Apple I – to sell to the Byte Shop for $500 each. Apple, currently the most valuable company in the world, was essentially born in this house, and would go on to change the world of personal electronics as we know it (just look at iPhone sales this past weekend). The computers built in the house have sold for hundreds of thousands of dollars, and not many are believed to remain today. Hopefully, 2066 Crist Drive in Los Altos, California will be a historical site soon.
What do you think? Should it be preserved? Would you designate it a historical site? Let us know in the comments, or tweet me @TiP_Kyle.
