Steve Jobs' House In Los Altos Designated A Historic Site

In Los Altos, Calif., a modest white ranch-style house trimmed in blue attracts tourists because the garage is legendary. It was in the garage and the living room of this house that a young Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak built the first Apple computers. This week, a Silicon Valley historical commission designated the house a historic site.

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne. It's a house that shouldn't stick out in the upscale city of Los Altos; a white, ranch-style house trimmed in blue. But it attracts tourists because the garage is legendary.
