Is Steve Jobs' Boyhood Home a Historic Property?

b_250_0_16777215_00_images_obgrabber_2013-09_6619941cf1.jpgMike Ehrmann/WireImage (LOS ALTOS, Calif.) -- The house on 2066 Crist Drive looks no different than the other '50s style ranch homes in Los Altos, Calif.  But the city's Historical Commission is considering declaring it a historic property, since Steve Jobs, who died in Palo Alto on Oct. 5, 2011, built the first Apple computers in the property's garage and lived there as a child.

Zach Dahl, the staff liaison to the Historical Commission, said that after Jobs died, there was a renewed interest in re-evaluating his childhood house in Los Altos.

"It's a historical commission initiated project," he told ABC News.  "We wouldn't be looking at landmark status, but just adding it to the historic resources inventory."

Unlike other Los Altos historical properties, the Jobs house doesn't have anything architecturally outstanding about it.

"Other historical properties are homes built around the turn of the century, in the early days of the agricultural communities," said Dahl. "We don't have anything else like this property."

Currently, the property is owned by the Jobs Trust.  Zillow.com values it at $1.5 million, although it is not up for sale.

"A member of the Jobs family may still be planning on living there," said Dahl.

Although the Historical Commission has not yet made a decision, Dahl anticipates that it will soon.

"We would be looking at the meeting on either Oct. 28th or Nov. 25th," he said.  That's when he expects the commission to make a decision one way or the other.
