Tecumseh Area Living Magazine

About Us

Established in 2006


Established in 2006 in the offices of The Tecumseh Herald - Homefront began as an exclusive real estate book and quickly morphed into a community lifestyle magazine. Originally mailed exclusively to every home and business in Tecumseh, we now reach far outside the Tecumseh area. The full-color glossy format has become a "must read" and therefore a "must advertise in..." publication.

What We Do


Located 30 miles Southwest of Ann Arbor, we explore and bring to light the rich offerings this corner of Southeast Michigan has to offer. From farm to table recipes, antique offerings, loft renovations, personal stories and exciting events, our seasonal magazine focuses on the charm of small town living.

Spreading the Word


Known for taking immense pride in our work, we feel we succeed when our advertisers do. Our 5 time MPA (Michigan Press Association) Award Winning graphic artists create many successful ad campaigns for local small businesses wishing not to remain small. Our design fee is free and is incorporated in our ad space rates. Businesses using their own agencies are also welcome to spread the word to our avid readers.

Story of One

Story of One

Sara Hilton     Spring 2018 Homefront

After nearly twenty years of interviewing a great number of individuals, what I know is that the story of one, the story of a single person within a swirl of overreaching stereotypes and assumptions is often vastly different than what we first imagine. So much so that I have learned to go into each interview with an understanding that I really don’t understand until I have taken the time to both question and listen. Writing stereotypes and assumptions is quick and easy. A good story, the actual story, that takes time. Read more

Salmon is typically one of those foods that either makes your mouth water or is decidedly unappetizing. But Annette Carpenter has a salmon patty recipe and sauce that will make you ask for seconds regardless of your affinity for the red-fleshed fish.

TYT - Shrek the Musical

TYT - Shrek the Musical

Sara Hilton     Spring 2018 Homefront

When the Tecumseh Youth Theatre Board decided to produce Shrek the Musical, they knew it was going to be a huge undertaking. From casting to music to costuming, Shrek is a very fun show, but also a very complicated show. "There are a fair amount of special effects in Shrek," said Heather Rowe, Shrek producer and TYT board member. "The Dragon is not only the largest, it's also the most recognizable. There are places you can rent different variations of the Dragon, but we really liked the idea of making it our own."

Musgrove Evans House

Musgrove Evans House

Sara Hilton     Spring 2018 Homefront

"It has a sense of place that a newer home just doesn't have," said William Pemberton, who lives in the Musgrove Evan's house. Musgrove Evans was the founder of Tecumseh. Built in 1826, his home is now the oldest house still standing in Lenawee County and one of the three oldest houses in the state. "Living in an old home has a different feel. You have the sense of all the lives that have lived here before you, and you realize you are just a piece, just a little part of the story."

When Musgrove Evans first arrive in Tecumseh in 1824 he quickly built a rough and temporary Read more
