Mrs. Mischler Recalls Life In Madisonville

Denia Chatellier Mischler of Madisonville wanted to attend college to study journalism, but she was needed at home so the journalism career was put on hold. As it turned out, she served as the weekly Madisonville correspondent for the St. Tammany Farmer newspaper for many years, chronicling the events of her home community and retelling, whenever she could, its history and attractions. 

Here is an article I wrote about Mrs. Mischler in 1976, including many references to early Madisonville history and the pioneer families that settled the area and developed its potential. Click on the image below to enlarge it for a readable view.
