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.
