Everybody's Welcome at John's Place
In Cookeville, TN, in the 1960s and 70s, there were only three places to go and have a beer but everyone was always welcome at John's Place. It was the first fully integrated establishment in Cookeville. People from all walks of life would visit for a bite to eat or to have a beer and a famous John Dog. A favorite hangout for Cookeville, Tennesseans and Tennessee Technological University students and alumni, WCTE saddled up to the bar at John's Place to talk with patrons, friends and family of this Cookeville favorite for the documentary Everybody's Welcome at John's Place.
