For more than 50 years, The Tennessee Magazine has been the official publication of our electric cooperatives, keeping consumer-members informed about their co-ops, showcasing the wonders of electric service and highlighting the special events around the state.
The cover of the June 1972 magazine featured an illustration showcasing the array of entertainment options at recently opened Opryland (see Tennessee History on page 28 to revisit the theme park that closed in 1997). Inside, readers learned more about the Nashville attraction as well as other Tennessee- and electricity-related subjects.
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. View the entire June 1972 edition online below.TTM-00717
