Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Washington's counties, including Adams, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
<3>A demonym is the name for a resident of a community which is usually derived from (or is related to) the name of that community. In other words, it's how the residents of Providence refer to themselves. It's important to note that there aren't any rules for taking a community's name and turning it into a demonym. A demonym is informal and while the majority of Providence may use one name, keep in mind that others may use something different.
<4>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Providence - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<5>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Providence) to Point B.Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Providence. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 46.9121, Longitude: -118.7347       In this case, the coordinates for Providence have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
