"You pass by the house, you wouldn't even know that anything significant happened there," said Sapna Marfatia, a Historical Commission, told the Mercury News.
"It's a very ordinary, everyday person's home. And yet, it changed a whole industry and there was a kind of revolution because of it."
Marilyn Jobs, Steve Jobs' stepmother, still lives in the 1,793-square-foot house. Built in 1952, it has three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
