The Los Altos, Calif., home where Steve Jobs, Apple’s iconic co-founder, grew up and built the first Apple computers with his co-founder Steve Wozniak has been named a ‘historic resource’ by the Los Altos Historical Commission.

The designation gives the commission the opportunity to make recommendations to the city council if renovations are ever proposed to the home, which is currently owned by Steve Jobs’ sister Patricia Jobs.

“Steve Jobs is considered a genius who blended technology and creativity to invent and market a product which dramatically changed many industries,” wrote Commissioner Sapna Marfatia in the commission’s evaluation. “His influence is expected to be felt by multiple generations forthcoming.”
