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.

A tranquil scene from Old Hickory Lake near Nashville graced the cover of the August 1968 edition. “Sailing … is the second best way to keep cool in August. The best way is to enjoy an air conditioned home,” read the photo description. Inside, members learned about “the struggle for a practical electric car.” While our fashions, appliances and recipes have significantly changed since our first issue in 1958, our mission to entertain, educate and inform our readers has not. Here’s a glimpse of what members saw 50 years ago in The Tennessee Magazine.
