A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Welcome to Providence ...
Although we found mention of Providence during our research, we have little information about it.<1> We believe that Providence had a post office at one time. We have done a cursory search and haven't been able to find any evidence that the community still exists..
While we are confident that Providence was located in Butler County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Providence to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Providence - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Providence, please Contact Us.
When the people of Providence refer to themselves (known as a demonym), they frequently use Providentian<2>
Time Zone: The area where we believe that Providence might be (or was) located is in the Central Time Zone (CST/CDT) and observes daylight saving time
