In the early 1850s, when services in the area were still being conducted in houses and barns, a visitor to the Valley offered to present a set of communion vessels to the first church to be built in Renfrew County. The original St Stephen’s church, a log church built on the site of the present church, was built in 1858 and so won the prize of an excellent chalice and paten.

In the 1870-1880s, a stone church was built to replace the log structure, with a rectory constructed beside it. That church was eventually outgrown and was replaced by a larger cement block church in 1907.

Less than a year after the completion of the third building, St Stephen’s was heavily damaged by an acetylene gas explosion. But the community rebuilt, and the current church building was consecrated on May 5, 1912.
