Long Description:
Sign text: One-half mile west is this Presbyterian church, established in Carter's Valley in 1780 by Rev. Charles Cummings and Rev. Samuel Doak. It was moved to its present location in 1815. A cemetery is at the old site.

The location is on the National Register of Historical Places as "New Providence Presbyterian Church, Academy, and Cemetery" but I did not have time to waymark it today. There are some Confederate soldier graves in the cemetery. Others can waymark as they have time to explore.

There use to be a great ammo box cache in the cemetery, but it was stolen and now archived.
