This is a beautiful church with a poignant backstory. It's a lovely visit and respite from the hustle and bustle of St. Augustine. The church has done a wonderful job of recognizing its history and provides tasteful presentations chronicling its 125 year lifespan. It is a self guided tour, with organ concerts at various times. Concert times are on their... More

There are several catholic churches I have seen that rival the beauty of this church, but not many protestant ones. The self-guided tour is free, and the staff are very knowledgeable about the building and its history. Many of the church's contents are original, but it all looks brand new! The church is still an actively used church. Our daughter... More

After visiting Flagler College visitors should walk the block to the Memorial Presbyterian Church behind the college. Here Flagler put his money into a beautiful memorial to his daughter who died in childbirth. Later, he was buried there. It is a beautiful church with a magnificent dome and stunning stained glass windows. Pick up the self-guided tour brochure when you... More

Of all the places we visited in St. Augustine this was by the far the most incredible place. Its rich in history, built in memory of Mr. Flagler's daughter. The architectural in this church is simply stunning. The gardens outside are very manicured and peaceful. The visit is free but the church ask for a $1.00 per person. The docent... More

Well worth getting off the beaten path and out of the sun. Might not be interesting for kids. Wish we had been there for a Wednesday morning concert. I believe they are free.

Built in memory of Mr.Flagler daughter Jennie Louise. Kind of Renaissance Revival style with many simillarites to venetian St. Mark Basilica.Resting place for Henry Flagler and the closest family members.

Worth a stop. Beautiful detail. The stained glass is gorgeous. Self guided tour with a docent inside to answer questions. It's free but they ask for a $1 per person donation. The courtyards and gardens outside are very pretty and peaceful. Take a walk around outside as you leave.
