Providence, just off U.S. Highway 287 three miles west of Eureka in south central Navarro County, was probably established before 1900 and was named for an early local church. A school was in operation there by the early 1900s, and in 1906 it had an enrollment of forty-three. In the mid-1930s the small community comprised the school, a store, a church, a cemetery, and a number of houses. After World War II the store was closed, and the school was consolidated with that of Mildred. In the mid-1960s all that remained at the site was a church, a cemetery, and a few widely scattered houses.
