Description Rev. Reuben Denton Nevius, D.D. In 1873, Dr. Nevius serviced missions in Grand Ronde and Powder River valleys for six years. Under his administration St. Stephens Episcopal Church was built, 1873-1875. Nevius Hall, a parish house built in 1909, was named for Dr. Nevius. That building was destroyed by fire 1-6-1914. Another parish hall was also destroyed by fire. A third hall was built in 1927. That building was later razed to make room for the present parking lot on the south side of the church.
