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 really wanted to see this church, but it was closed the first day we tried to go there. So we rearranged our schedule to go back the next day. Are we glad we did. Built by Henry Flagler as a memorial to his daughter,...More

The architecture is breathtaking. As a photographer you will find many things to take photos of. The docent is very helpful. It is an amazing place to sit down and take in the beauty of this church. Definitely a must see place

I didn't expect much from this church but it is surprisingly attractive inside. Based on one of the parts of the Duomo in Venice it is unlike any other church I've been in in the USA that was not Greek Orthodox. The stained glass is...More

Much history is explained during this visit. How this building with all its beauty, exquisite detailing and windows could be built in the allotted time. A great place to spend 30 minutes.

Beautiful church with an interesting history. Can't say enough about the beautiful Tiffany (yes, real Tiffany) stained glass windows. It is certainly a testament to the ego of Henry Flagler.

I was obsessed with photographing this church - I didn't have time to go in but I made it a point to at least walk by once in the day and once in the evening - absolutely stunning

The sexton we met is a parrishioner and was very knowledgeable. Unbelieveably, this church was completed and dedicated in less than one year. For the most part, you can wander freely. A small donation will also provide you a nice gift! It is beautiful and...More

Everyone visiting St. Augustine should take time to visit Memorial Presbyterian Church. The history of the church is very moving, and it is beautiful inside and outside. If you enjoy churches, this is a "must see" during your time in St. Augustine.
