The NRHP Multiple Property Documentation Form nominates groups of related significant properties. On it,
the themes, trends, and patterns of history shared by the properties are organized into
historic contexts and the property types that represent those historic contexts are defined.
The Multiple Property Documentation Form is a cover document and not a nomination in its own right, but serves as a
basis for evaluating the National Register eligibility of related properties. It may be used to nominate and register
thematically-related historic properties simultaneously or to establish the registration requirements for properties
that may be nominated in the future.
The name of the thematic group, denoting
the historical framework of nominated properties, is the multiple property listing. When nominated and listed in the
National Register of Historic Places, the Multiple Property Documentation Form, together with individual Registration
Forms, constitute a multiple property submission.
