Jackling House | Built 1925 by Daniel Jackling | Woodside, CA | Steve Jobs purchased the house and petitioned the court to have the historic house demolished so he could build a smaller house on the land. Preservationists argued that "it represents one of the few remaining examples of a Spanish Colonial Revival style home and is therefore too historic to destroy." In the end Jobs won, and the house was demolished in 2011. The same year Steve Jobs died. | Photo by Jonathan Haeber c. 2007

The legal battle that ensued was epic. From 2004 to 2011, Jobs and his lawyer returned to court time after time to gain the necessary demolition permits. The two sides struggled seemingly endlessly, with the preservationists insisting that the home was an important piece of history and Jobs insisting that it would take more money to salvage the mansion than it would to simply tear it down and build a new home.
