Columns by Regina Villiers

These articles were featured weekly in Suburban Life-Press. There are over 600 stories about Madeira published over a span of fifteen years and we have the honor to host them on our website.

Regina was a longtime resident of the Madeira community, raised her family here, taught school in Madeira, and is legendary for providing over fifteen years of historical reading enjoyment. Her articles have been featured many times in many venues throughout the years. We are excited and proud to be able to share this history of our community with you.
