Historic preservationists vs. Steve Jobs.

SteveJobsHomeDemolished
For nearly a decade, Steve Jobs has been fighting preservationists over his plans to demolish his Woodside, California home. Built 86 years ago, the 30-room Spanish Colonial Revival home was designed by architect George Washington Smith for copper baron Daniel Jackling. Jobs lived in it for a while, and then left it vacant as he pursued permits to destroy the house and build something smaller. Eleven years of neglect later, the home was determined to be beyond repair and the town granted the demotion permit. Two days ago, it was torn down. What do you think, should the buyer of a historically significant home be responsible for its legacy, or is it theirs to keep or destroy as they please?
