A Silicon Valley city has designated the boyhood home of Steve Jobs an "historic resource" due to the way the legendary Apple co-founder went on to change the world.


Members of the historic commission in Los Altos voted unanimously late Monday to give the single-story, ranch-style home the special status.

"This is a childhood home of Apple Computer Company founder Steve Jobs," the commission noted in a report backing the decision.

"The site is also where the Apple Computer Company was founded and the first 50 to 100 Apple computers were assembled, which is a pattern of events that have made significant contributions to local history and the cultural heritage of California and the United States."

The two-year process to stamp the house, owned by the late Apple co-founder's sister Patricia Jobs, with historic status, which comes with restrictions on renovations or remodeling.

The famed garage where Jobs and Steve Wozniak planted seeds for Apple remains unchanged except for the door being replaced, according to the commission's report.

The house was built in 1951 and was considered remarkable for the role it played in the life of Jobs, not for its architecture, the commission noted.

The house was originally owned by Steve Jobs' adoptive parents.

Jobs died in October of 2011 at the age of 56 after battling cancer for several years.

The memory of the visionary credited with igniting a mobile computing revolution with iPhones, iPads, and iPods was honored by people of all kinds, from heads of state and celebrities to youngsters who loved Apple gadgets.
