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.

A young man greeted us inside and provided a detailed explanation of the historical significance behind the various architectural elements. A voluntary donation was suggested. Well worth it.

Beautiful church and helpful volunteers who know the history of the church. It's free and one learns some of the history of the Flager family. Well worth doing.

Another building by Henry Flagler. This is a magnificent church with charm from deep woods, brass lighting and gorgeous stained glass windows. Hop off of the Red Train and visit. This is a free stop but feel free to make a donation to the church.

This particular church continues the story of Henry Flagler and his vision for St Augustine...the second wave of history of the city. The docent was well informed and very amiable. This is a key part of understanding modern St Augustine.
