For more than 50 years, The Tennessee Magazine has been the official publication of our electric cooperatives, keeping member-owners informed about their co-op, showcasing the wonders of electric service and highlighting the special events around the state.
Back in September 1967, members learned about “The Wonderful World of Home Freezers,” saw an advertisement for the State Fair in Nashville and were invited to visit “one of Tennessee’s beautiful State Parks” (Big Ridge near Maynardville featured on the cover) as fall approached.
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 50 years ago saw in The Tennessee Magazine. View the entire September 1967 edition below.
