The history of the congregants of this church begins in June 1824, during the Territorial Period of Florida history – making it the first presbyterian congregation in Florida. In 1889, Henry Morrison Flagler, son of a Presbyterian minister, hired renowned architects John M. Carrere and Thomas Hastings to build present-day Memorial Presbyterian Church. It was dedicated in March 1890 for the purpose of memorializing his daughter Jennie Louise and granddaughter, both of whom were lost during childbirth. Flagler, his first wife Mary, daughter Jennie, and little Marjorie lay at rest in the mausoleum on church property. Next year, 2024, will mark the congregation’s 200th anniversary.
