Description:

Located in historic St. Augustine, Florida, Memorial Presbyterian Church is a congregation of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). We are not just any church. We are Florida's first Presbyterian congregation, established in 1824. CNN has named us one of the eight religious wonders in the United States. The present sanctuary was given by Henry Morrison Flagler and dedicated in 1890 as a memorial to his daughter Jenny Louise Benedict who died from complications from childbirth. Mr. Flagler, his first wife, Mary, daughter Jenny Louise and granddaughter, Marjorie, are entombed in the Flagler family mausoleum at Memorial. The church is open for visitors Monday-Saturday from 11:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Enjoy a tour of the church by one of our trained docents during the week and then return on Sunday to join us in worship. Our visitors come from across the state, the nation, and the world.

We visited the Memorial Presbyterian Church on a tram tour of Saint Augustine! This church is beautiful and quite reflective of the historical heritage of Saint Augustine.

Another feather in Mr. Flagler's hat. The architecture stands out from blocks away, and it is, in one word: STUNNING. A must see.

This church built in less than a year is a marvel! Loved the architecture. The story behind the commissioning of this church is sad, but beautiful. The trolley makes a stop here and I am so glad we decided to stop in. There are docents who are more than willing to give you a brief history of the building. It... More

It is stunningly gorgeous with all of the... More

Beautiful frescoed ceilings, an amazing pipe organ, awesome stained glass - everything you'd expect in a German or Italian chapel. The docent was excellent and gave a full history of the structure and Henry Flagler. If you're tired of the typical , take in this site-you'll be surprised at how much more you will enjoy your visit to St. Augustine!
