LOS ALTOS, Calif. (AP) — The childhood home of the late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs could soon be preserved as a historical site in Silicon Valley.
The Los Altos Historical Commission is scheduled Monday to discuss a proposal to give protected status to the single-story, ranch house where Jobs and his foster parents moved in 1968.
Commissioner Sapna Marfatia says the property is historically significant because it's where Jobs and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak built the first 50 Apple 1 computers in 1976.
The first partnership for "Apple Computer Co." was established at the Crist Drive home in Los Altos before the company relocated to nearby Cupertino.
The San Jose Mercury News (http://bit.ly/18ifIJh ) reports the former Jobs home would have to be preserved as it currently stands if added to the city's historic resources inventory.
