Steve Jobs's Childhood Home Becomes a Historic Site

Originally posted 10/29/2013 12:50PM

The Silicon Valley home where Apple co-founder Steve Jobs grew up and built some of his first computers is now on the city's list of historic properties.

The historical commission in the city of Los Altos voted unanimously for the historic designation on Monday night, the Palo Alto Daily News reported. Any proposed renovations to the modest, ranch-style home now require additional review.

The home, where Jobs and his foster parents moved in 1968, is currently owned by Patricia Jobs, Steve Jobs's sister. The commission didn't need her permission for the designation, although she could appeal it to the city council.

What About Steve Jobs Surprised Ashton Kutcher Most?

Ashton Kutcher on Skipping College and Inspiring Kids as Steve Jobs

Ashton Kutcher went pretty method to become Steve Jobs – even risking his health following the late entrepreneur's crazy diet, which landed him in the hospital. But it was the Apple co-founder's stance on education that really struck a chord.

"I found a speech that he gave and he was speaking to high school kids that were about to graduate. He encouraged these kids to maybe go to Paris and try to write poetry or fall in love with two people ... maybe this standard education wasn't the greatest means to creative solutions," Kutcher, 35, told reporters at a press conference for the film in New York City.

"I wanted to do this film to inspire young people to create the world they live in. I think that was an ethos of Steve Jobs," he said Monday.
