For more than 50 years, The Tennessee Magazine has been the official publication of our electric cooperatives, keeping member-owners informed about their co-ops, showcasing the wonders of electric service and highlighting the special events around the state.

Back in April 1966, readers found tips to improve their drawing skills, saw advertisements for housing and new electrical appliances and read a pitch from the Tennessee Conservation Department to “add a touch of magic to spring days spent vacationing in Tennessee.

While our fashions, appliances and recipes have significantly changed since 1958, our mission to entertain, educate and inform our readers has not. Here’s a glimpse of what members 50 years ago saw in The Tennessee Magazine. View the entire April 1966 below.
