Steve Jobs’ Abandoned Mansion

Here’s a photo tour of a once-opulent building that fell into ruin, but this one has a modern story, and the photographs are all that is left. The 17,000 square-foot Jackling Mansion was built in 1925 in Woodside, California. Steve Jobs lived there for abut ten years, but let it fall into disrepair after 2000. The home maintenance was abandoned because Jobs planned to tear down the house, but then found himself in a long battle with historic preservationists. Meanwhile, photographer Jonathan Haeber documented the home’s downfall in pictures. See them at WebUrbanist. Link
