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.
The cover of the May 1969 issue featured Nashville’s Centennial Park and its beautiful beds of red tulips in front of its iconic Parthenon replica. Inside the magazine, electric cooperative members learned about the features and appliances every household needs in a dream kitchen.
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 May 1969 edition online below.1969-095
