The Providence Mountains are a range of mountains located 28 miles north-northeast of Amboy. In 1775 Father Francisco Garces named the north end of the range Sierra de Santa Coleta (Mountains of St. Coleta). Providence first appeared on maps in 1857. In 1909 the U.S. Geological Survey divided the mountains into three sections; the northern portion is now the New York Mountains, the middle is now called Mid Hills, and the southern portion is still known as the Providence Mountains.
