When we went in January there was some construction going on on the outside and that made it a little difficult to get in but ones we did get it it was beautiful with a lot of history behind it

Church funded by Henry Flagler; very ornate and well maintained. We heard an organ concert in it and the acoustics were great. Knowledgeable church people answer questions, and a person can walk the area quite freely. At times there are actual tour guides.More

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.
