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.

“Must See in St Augustine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

Beautiful Church. A must see in Historic St Augustine. This is where Flagler was laid to rest. Make sure you see the Tomb. Also, I understand the amazing pipe organ is played during services.

“magnificent church”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

Flagler built the church for his dead daughter and her baby. It is so beautiful!! There are stained glass windows and pictures, and a double cross made completely out of gold.

We were here for a wedding so enjoyed a wonderful ceremony. The stained glass is very beautiful. Definitely worth a stop to see. We did not get we chance to go into the shop or outside areas.
