If you're in the neighborhood walk by this old church. If you have a little extra time take a look at the interior. It's relatively plain so it won't take too long.

The architecture and beautiful interior of the church were very impressive. Beautiful stained glass windows line the outer walls. The pipe organ and carved pulpit remind us of the old European cathedrals with their ornate interiors. This is one of several churches built by the wealth of Mr. Henry M. Flagler, co-founder of Standard Oil Company. The docent tells many... More

The crosses hanging from the ceiling are gorgeous! The wood and great history is well worth the time. It is a very sacred place, not just a beautiful place.

Amazing history of the Flagler family. What a loving gift after the loss of his daughter. It is so peaceful there. You can just move through out the church yourself, there is a steward there to answer questions. The mahogany and carvings are jaw dropping. It's also free to the public.

Amazing piece of 19th century architecture where money was not a barrier. Henry Flagler built this in memory of his daughter who died shortly after childbirth. It has a very large pipe organ. Worth the visit.

Henry Flagler spared no expense to build this memorial to his daughter and granddaughter. Take the tour and you'll learn about Flagler as well as about this church.

This church is beautiful, especially the color of the ceiling and the dome. The docent could only give us a quick history because the organist was practicing for future Lenten services. What a special treat to hear the organ music!

This site was well worth the stop. This church built as a burial place for Mr. Flagler's daughter. It is beautiful. The self guided tour through the church was informational and interesting. We were fortunate enough to hear the musicians practicing on the enormous pipe organ, that was a special and unexpected.

This is a beautiful church that Henry Flagler had built in about a year to honor his daughter and granddaughter who both died in childbirth. The docent said the baby is buried with her mother. Flagler and his first wife (he had 3) are buried there, also. The church has some striking features and grounds worth walking around. Enjoyed the... More

Mom's church while she lived there. Very good at welcoming people that have moved to the area. They are very involved in community and have a great thrift shop behind church..
