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.

Really fantastic church with wonderful display of the origin and history. Being Presbyterian, we were especially interested in examining the artifacts and learning about its inception.. They did not disappoint. The docent there was very friendly and helpful and the original pictures were so interesting.

Much history is explained during this visit. How this building with all its beauty, exquisite detailing and windows could be built in the allotted time. A great place to spend 30 minutes.

Beautiful church with an interesting history. Can't say enough about the beautiful Tiffany (yes, real Tiffany) stained glass windows. It is certainly a testament to the ego of Henry Flagler.
