This is Henry Flagler's tribute to his deceased daughter & grandchild. There are 92 stained glass windows, all original mahogany pews and pulpit. The rotunda ceiling is beautiful as well as symbolic. Attached is the Flagler mausoleum. Just can't imagine how long it would take to build today !

Wow! We stopped in here for a moment while we were on a Carriage Ride around the city, and what a gorgeous church! Henry Flager is actually entombed here, and you can see the mausoleum.

Church is so lovely.. A historical treasure. Rushed out to buy a book about Henry Flagler, the man who had the church built to honor bis daughter who died in childbirth and the granddaughter who also died at birth. the docent was so informative - there wasn't a question she couldn't answer...and then some! I would not miss this!!

The walk here from Flagler College and/or Leightner Museum is close. The original building was built in record time when Flagler was developing Saint Augustine into THE resort of the day. The present Church building had just celebrated an anniversary days before we were there. There are many interesting pictorial displays along with the written history of the building and... More

It's a church, the inside is beautifully done. Not a stop for everyone but the murals and stained glass are worth a quick look

very beautiful church and the story.... Flagler built it for a congregation of 40 just so he would have somewhere to worship when he was in town.

Well worth the stop and tour. We were fortunate to be able to overhear the talk a 4th grade class was getting and it was extremely informative...craftsmanship was remarkable, something we don't see done in this "modern, want it done NOW age"

One of the few free things to see in St Augustine and one of the most beautiful. The organ is awesome - sorry we were unable to attend a service and hear that played. The ceiling and the stained glass windows were awesome. Make sure to go inside and enjoy

This church is amazing, almost similar to the ones you could find in Europe. The outside architecture is especially appealing. Henry Flagler built the church for his dead daughter, I believe. The garden and surroundings are also stunning. Definitely worth a visit!
