The 1800s Memorial Presbyterian Church in Saint Augustine. This is a real beauty. I got to go inside many years ago, but the last time I was in Saint Augustine the church was closed. It is one of the most beautiful churches in the country.

Henry Flagler and his entire family are buried here. Many credit Flagler as a South Florida guy. He was Rockefeller’s partner at Standard Oil and originally built up Saint Augustine and helped make Jacksonville the country’s elite winter destination. He “eventually” extended on down to Palm Beach and Miami Beach, and not long after he passed.

Grace United Methodist Church in Saint Augustine first held services in 1884.

Some more downtown Jacksonville churches. Jacksonville has some of the prettiest churches in the South, and certainly far more beautiful, big, old churches than anywhere else in Florida. Actually, there are some real “Spanish” beauties scattered about town (in that CA mission style, if you know what I mean).

First Presbyterian, dates to 1901.


The Catholic Church of the Immaculate Conception, dates to 1910. It’s definitely the largest church in Florida (excluding any mega-ugly mega churches of the modern era). The Episcopal Cathedral of St. John down the street is close in size, and older, it is seen further above.

First Methodist Church




First Baptist, either a 1901 or 1903 structure.
