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 September 1970 magazine featured Motlow State Community College near Lynchburg. Inside, members learned about the recently completed all-electric Jackson County Bank facility in Gainesboro and saw the importance of quality electrical lighting in a student workspace at home.
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 September 1970 edition below.TTM-00205
