Providence, Utah


When Brigham Young sent a group into the Cache Valley in 1855, they built their first settlement just southwest of where Providence is now. The area was beautiful with plenty of water and arable land around. However, that first winter was severe enough to chase most of those settlers out. They did return, especially after the Utah War of 1858 turned out to be a dud...

By 1860, Providence was a small but thriving settlement of Yankee, English and Swiss migrants, all enjoying a common religious persuasion. Providence remained a primarily rural area until Utah State University began expanding in the 1960's. Today, the population of Providence is up more than 60% since 2000.
