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.

The story behind the building of this church is quite fascinating, involving the Flagler family. The building is very beautiful. Self guided, and there is a docent present if you have questions. Truly worth seeing.

If you love history and beautiful architecture, this is your stop. Tour the church Henry Flagler built to memorialize his daughter. Also, Flagler himself is buried here. The church is very much allive and active as a Presbyterian Church today.

This church is absolutely gorgeous. The inside is inspiring as well as lovely to look at. It would be a great place to worship. You have to see it, to appreciate it's beauty and reverence. Don't miss the inside of this church.

The church is open for tours between 11:00 and 3:30. Henry Flagler built this church for his daughter who passed away and it was completed in 361 days. Both of the trolleys have a stop at this church.

Another beautiful church for the city. It's a lot of great history, and worth a drive, walk or trolley ride by if you're into churches!

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...More

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...More
