The single-story ranch house where the young Steve Jobs built the first Apple computer will be evaluated by the Los Altos Historical Society to determine whether it should become a protected historical site.

Jobs moved to the Los Altos house with his foster parents when he was in 7th grade, CNN reports. He and his high school friend Steve Wozniak built the first Apple computers in the house’s attached garage.

Jobs and Wozniak sold these first computers to Paul Terrell’s Byte Shop for $500, and formally established Apple Computer Co. nine months later, in 1977.
