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 October 1967, readers learned how to cook with their electric skillets, were invited to explore the Upper Cumberlands in the fall and saw on the cover a cabin near Gatlin-burg at which someone was performing the “diminishing but still traditional and interesting art” of yarn dyeing.
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 October 1967 edition below.
