This towering Gothic Revival church is the largest pre-1901 house of worship in Jacksonville. When it was constructed in 1887, its architect, Robert S. Schuyler, had already established himself as an experienced designer of Episcopal churches. In addition to four Carpenter Gothic chapels in Waldo, Fairbanks, Pablo Beach, and Lake Santa Fe, Florida, Schuyler also designed St. Peter's Church in Fernandina in 1881 (one of several National Register buildings designed by Schuyler in that city). With the coming of the NFL football team, the city government purchased much of the land around the newly constructed Alltel Stadium, including the Old St. Andrews site. The Jacksonville Historical Society was given the rights to the building if it could restore it. Thanks to the city's cooperation and a challenge grant from the Weaver Foundation, JHS was able to raise a million dollars to complete the restoration of the old church to use as its headquarters. Old St. Andrews stands proudly today as one of the finest specimens of nineteenth-century architecture in Duval County, and it is a popular spot for meetings, weddings and other civic events.

    Simply wonderful

    Old St. Andrew's Event Venue is a diamond in the rough. I want to thank Jade for making my Wedding Ceremony the best day for our little family. The facility is easy to locate and can fit a little over 100 people. I would recommend this place for any event or get together. Jade was very accommodating and the best person to work with whether it be a beautiful wedding reception or an intimate place to gather with family and friends. If you have not checked it out take a look today you will not regret it. We took beautiful pictures with the natural beauty of the stained glass windows. I cant say enough about this wonderful venue.

    This venue was beautiful! Meghan was great to work with too! She clearly explained the process / order of the service and offered recommendations on what she has seen done in previous weddings. The sun light that hit the stained glass windows through the church allowed for great pictures. Honestly the church itself has such a great feel / look that you don't need to spend a lot of money on flowers / decorations. I lined the center aisle with roses and that was it. It turned out beautiful. I would definitely recommend this venue!!

    Megan is the absolute BEST! She is the current facility coordinator there and she made my wedding so much less stressful! She was there for me every step of the way which was an awesome perk because the church is already such a gorgeous wedding venue but Megan's help really made the difference. Ask for her!
