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.

Just happened across the church, having seen the dome dome streets away. Certainly a pretty church to look around. There are docents available and keen to depart information about the family and the building of the church. For me as a seasoned traveller it's not a fabulous church, but I loved the cross chandeliers and enjoed the docents account. Certainly... More

This is a lovely Church built by Flagler. The docent was excellent. The stained glass windows are beautiful following the niecene creed throughout the Church. The organ was quite impressive. A must see.

Absolutely beautiful building. Built by Henry Flagler with it being his final resting place in it. Stain glass is gorgeous the wood is all original. Magahony wood to be exact. Make sure to make time to see this building free admission,so why not.

We probably would have passed by without stopping in, but the Trolley driver recommended it. I am so glad we took the time to visit. It is a stunning building with a very interesting history. It is worth stopping for. We spent about 30 minutes here.

If you enjoy the history of Flagler College and the Lightner Museum, this is a must see stop. We were greeted by Pat, who was very knowledgeable of the history of Henry Flagler, his family and the church. The construction and preservation, from the stained glass windows to the woodworking of this church that was built for Mr. Flagler's daughter... More

We had a list of places to see on our short trip to St. Augustine and this was not on the list, but one of the Trolley stops. I'm so glad we visited! I have a weakness for historic churches and stained-glass windows and this church did not disappoint. The architecture, both inside and outside, is amazing, as is the... More

The architecture was wonderful, and the story associated with Mr. Flagler was astonishing. The building was closed because we were there the week after hurricane Matthew.
