It has none of the breathtaking majesty of Mount Rushmore, the Golden Gate Bridge, or the Statue of Liberty, but the modest California home where Steve Jobs grew up and created Apple may be on its way to becoming a landmark.

The Los Altos Historical Commission is mulling a proposal to designate 2066 Crist Drive — where Jobs and Steve Wozniak built the first Apple computers in the garage — a home of "historical significance," the San Jose Mercury News reports.

The undistinguished, single-story home has no architectural significance, but what happened there changed communication around the world and is the hub of what became Silicon Valley.

"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.
