Providence Square is an anomaly that showed up on roadmaps because of the crossroads. It should be included in the Evansburg District because the dwellings in this area belonged to the Funkites whose lands bordered both sides of the Skippack Creek. Title search revealed homes belonging to Abraham Funk, Christian Rosenberry and William Smith (original Rosenberry home) on Grange Avenue on the east side of the stream. In addition to these Funkite, George Evans lived on the east bank of the Skippack in an early Federal period house which he built or had built for him. On the west bank of the Skippack, the Evansburg side, one finds the Funkite Cemetery, the site of the early Meeting House, Keyser's Mill (which was owned by Daniel Kroll a Funkite -- Croll's house is in Evansburg), the Miller's Houses and Barn. The areas really belong together because of the mixture of Funkites and Evanses. The high dam would, of course, separate these areas, but historically the area is one.
