4. Providence City Sesquicentennial
Providence City Sesquicentennial 1859 2009 The pioneer community of Spring Creek, founded on April 20, 1859 was renamed Providence in November 1859 at the suggestion of visiting Apostle Orson Hyde who considered the settlement “Providential” from a population of 60 then to over 6000 today, Providence has evolved through stages from a pioneer settlement to a rural, agricultural and bedroom community which in recent years has added a thriving commercial center. Providence is the fifth largest Cache Valley Community. Many descendants of the pioneers still live here, supplemented by other outstanding people who have chosen this to be their home. The population is talented, well educated, productive, friendly, diverse, occasionally controversial and always dedicated to improving our quality of life. In this it has been very successful. We dedicate this monument to the pioneers who made sacrifices of enduring significance, with full recognition to all who have followed in their footsteps to make this city so great, and to the children who may thrive here and enjoy an even more vibrant future. The original monument included the pioneer plaque and celebrated Utah’s Centennial. It was dedicated June 7, 1947 by George Albert Smith, President of the Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This monument dedicated by President Boyd K Packer of the Quorum of Twelve Apostles June 6, 2009.
