Explore and admire one of Florida's oldest and grandest sites of worship, Memorial Presbyterian Church. The imposing building was inspired by St. Mark's Basilica in Venice and features a number of expensive materials and intricate decoration. Henry Morrison Flagler, a famous American industrialist, commissioned the church in 1889 as a memorial to his daughter and infant granddaughter, who both died due to complications during childbirth. Approach one of the church docents to learn not only about the building, but also Flagler's fascinating life. The church's mausoleum serves as the final resting place for Flagler, his first wife, their daughter, and her baby.

I have been going to this church since I was born. Every single person there loves you from the inside out. They have beautiful hymnals, and sometimes the Children's Choir does performances. If you want to go to an amazing church this is the place to go.❤️ There is also a garden that winds round the church, giving you a scenic walk. If you are planning a visit to St. Augustine, try to squeeze in a visit. It will definitely be worth it.
The church is nice but it looks more interesting from the outside than it actually is. The structure is beautiful but it isn't an impressive church by any means. It is nice to admire some of the relics and religious artifacts inside (especially the organ), however, it lacks detail. It was just ok. Free admission, $5 suggested donation
