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.
In the October 1968 edition, electric cooperative members learned about a new resort on Lake Holiday in Crossville, read of the homestyle offerings at Hagy’s Catfish Hotel near Shiloh National Military Park and saw an ad touting electrical cooking advancements from Hotpoint.
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 October 1968 edition below.1968-221
