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.

Reviewed March 23, 2014

a very unique piece of saint augestine. when I looked through the church I noticed that every thing was beautifully constructed and full of interesting details. you could look for hours and never catch every detail. it also had many pieces of history in it. these include the body of Henry Flagler, a 19th century bible and a table sat on by the Flagler family. the outside was also very interesting and just walking out to it gave you a sense of piece. I would for sure return if I came back here if given the chance.

This is such a breathtakingly beautiful church. The details are amazing in the woodwork, light fixtures and stained glass. We went on a Wednesday & the organist was practicing for the Wednesday performance. Wow!
