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.

This place is so beautiful. Stunning artistry when they built it. Amazing Tiffany glass window and great place for photography. Also free!

I love going in churches, old ones, when I can and this one was truly a beautiful one! The reason it was built is a heart tugging story. The labor that went into it shows.

Enjoyed the self guided tour. It is a beautiful church. We almost passed the mausoleum that has Mr Flagler and family members.

This was a suprising stop for us as the interior of the church was very beautiful and the volunteer inside was also very helpful. The stain glass windows were amazing and we enjoyed the walk through the church.
