Overview

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.

I thought I was in Saint Mark's in Rome. Docents are very knowledgeable. Make sure you linger in front of each window and gaze at the pew lamps.

This was a stop along our trolley tour. Initially, we weren't too sure about going in, but the building is just exquisite that we couldn't help ourselves. I'm so glad we stopped and went in; the docent explained all about the church's history, the connection...More

Last May was the first time I saw the inside of the church. The guided tour was excellent, Be sure to see Henry Morton Flagler's tomb, which is part of the tour.

Henry Flagler had this beautiful church built in 362 days. It has a mausoleum with a wife and child. The organ music is fantastic. Please visit, no admission but donations are appreciated.

today was a church day and we peeked in and saw the windows and heard some music - it is an older church and not a lot of architecture that wowed us. but it is beautiful.

This was one of my favorite places to view in St. Augustine. The Catholic Church in town is beautiful and has more of a Spanish flair, but I adored this much more. It's unexpected to see such ornate decorations from a Presbyterian Church, and it...More

Who knew that Presbyterians could build a beautiful church!. It's definitely worth the visit. There is a museum through out the church because it is the burial place of Flagler.
