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.

We were not able to attend the service as we had planned, so we arrived an hour later, found to be locked and not allowed in. They are currently working to restore some of the outsides of the building. Really surprised they do not have...More

What a beautiful place. It's not often we see churches like this where I am from. They just don't make them like this anymore.

Go inside for a look. There are docents to tell you want you are looking at. It's very pretty and worth the time. The history is sad, but what a great tribute to love.

The church was built in 3 days less than a year. It is magnificent. Off to one side is the burial place for a wife and his child.

I enjoyed a self tour of the church very much, and was glad that they had informational displays and a helpful docent to answer questions.

Our historic Sanctuary is open to visitors Mon thru Sat from 11AM until 3:45PM unless we have a Funeral/Memorial Service come up. Most weddings happen on Saturday - the Sanctuary would be closed to visitors then as well.
