Steve Jobs’ Childhood Home May Become A Historical Site: The House Where Apple Was Born

In an unassuming house that could be anyone’s child hood home, is the place where Apple co-founder Steve Jobs spent his days as a child growing up. It is in the town of Los Altos, California and his modest child-hood home is being considered as a historical site.

But it was in the garage of this home that Apple founders Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak created some of their first computers in 1976. Within these walls they created Apple Corporation. The owner of the home today is Steve Jobs’ sister, Patricia and now City planners are discussing with her the option of turning her home into a historical site.

A public hearing of the planning board to change its status is scheduled later in October.

It was reported that in May 2013 Apple maintains 408 retail stores in 14 countries, as well as the online Apple Store and iTunes store. It continues to push the boundaries and expectations of technology with the development of products like the iPod, the tablet and the smart phone.

Steve Jobs was an entrepreneur, inventor, co-founder and CEO of Apple Inc. His face has become just as iconic as the Apple logo; he won many awards for his contributions to technology and music and was regaled by many as a visionary.  Jobs died on October 5th, 2011.
