This Multiple Property Documentation (MPD) Form facilitates the nomination to the registers of resources associated with the tobacco industry in Richmond. The historic contexts for this MPD focus on commerce and trade, in particular, the storage, processing, and production of tobacco in Richmond, Virginia, between 1874 and 1963. While previous National Register nominations have looked at production facilities, this MPD focuses attention on the related system of storing tobacco, before and after it is processed, but before it leaves the processing facility as a commodity item. This MPD argues that the storage and warehousing system is overlooked as an integral part of the system for processing tobacco, and seeks to broaden the understanding of the physical resources involved in tobacco processing in Richmond.
