National Register Multiple Property Submission Contexts for California

Note: These contexts can be used to nominate and register thematically-related properties or to evaluate the National Register eligibility of related properties. Properties can be nominated to the National Register if they fit within the definitions of an already established historic context, allowing much simpler and shorter nomination forms. National Register Bulletins 16A and 16B provide information on how to use these contexts.

For more information about how to nominate properties to the National Register using a Multiple Property Document context, watch this video and contact Registration Unit staff.

Multiple Covers (Historic Contexts) developed for other states and themes are also available online through the NPS Focus database.
