The first Providence Meeting House was a log building used by the meeting from c. 1789 to c. 1793.
 
The log meeting house was built around 1789. Prior to this time, the meeting had been held in the house of James Parviance. Parviance sold 15 acres of land to the trustees of Little Redstone Meeting in 1789; later that year, the meeting was renamed Providence.
 
The log meeting house was demolished for a stone meeting house in the 1790s. One source gives the date of construction of the stone meeting house as 1793 and another source says 1797.
