Hardin County History Book shows that Providence was the very first settlement in Hardin County. The site is 8 miles north of Kountze. The Holland family named it Providence because they found Village Creek a "most heavenly spot" in 1829. I don't know if there is any marker there now. Sandra Stiles, President of Hardin County Gen Society.
