Owner 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 church because it was part of Flagler's and St. Augustine's history. Visitors can take a self-guided tour. We appreciated the beautiful stained glass windows and learning about the history of the church.

Worth a stop here, while in St Augustine. Architecture is amazing. The guides do a great job about explaining the Flagler Family. Nice place to sit and reflect. and if you can get to a Sunday service, the organ is fantastic.

Can't imagine visiting St. Augustine and not see this church built by Flagler in honor or his daughter who passed away. Flagler Tomb is here. Also a empty tomb that no one can seem to agree for whom it belongs to.
