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 is an extremely beautiful church - well worth the trolley stop. It is the 9th stop on the Old Time Trolley. Ceiling is awesome. Teal color is beautiful. Chandeliers are crosses put together so you see them from both sides. Lamps are special. Chapel is beautiful. Pews with pillows.

Tragic history but an absolutely lovely place. Totally worth going in and walking around. The architecture alone is worth it!

Built as the final resting place for himself, wife, daughter and grand daughter. Was gifted to the Presbyterian church and was built in just over 1 year. Good historical guided tour by local parishioner.

We had a great docent that gave in quick fashion all the details we needed to know which included us asking several questions. The church is beautiful and full of history significant to St. Augustine. It was free but they do have a donation bucket out.

Beautiful church full of history, make sure they are open as it's staffed by volunteers and not open to the public often

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 to the Flagler family, and how the church came to be. The inside of the... 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.
