Anyone who knows the history of Silicon Valley knows that the region was already home to several important technology companies before Hewlett and Packard went into business together. But the HP Garage is now known as the "birthplace of Silicon Valley," in large part because of the many tech companies that spun off of HP.Hewlett-Packard purchased the house in front, and the garage, in 2000. It is now listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
