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.
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.
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.
We like to keep you up-to-date with what's going on right in your own backyard.
Here are some stories from our latest issue of 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.

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."

"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
We love hearing your thoughts on the Homefront so much that we share it with others!
What a brilliant idea for your advertisers!! I read every inch of every ad. Looking for your paperclip insert on one of your ads... This is a beautifully done publication. I hope I get one every time you print one.
I've always loved Tecumseh. It's such a pleasant place to shop. Keep up the good work.
To staff at Homefront Magazine, Thank you for the quality publication that I enjoy!
The advertisements are helpful since we have lived in Tecumseh area for a few years now, and I'm still learning about our town. The articles are full of history and information I always glean from. I try to take advantage of as many community activities as I can from the advanced notice provided. Thanks again & Keep up the good work. It is appreciated.
I want to tell you how much I enjoy reading Homefront. I like the articles, I find useful business information from the ads & I always see interesting things to do in the calendar of events. I used to pick up Homefront when I was in Tecumseh shopping at What a Find! Consign. I was thrilled to get a copy delivered to my mailbox in Manchester.
Thanks again for a great magazine and making us aware of all that's available in not only Tecumseh but surrounding communities... Homefront is a winner again. It's a wonderful showcase for pure Michigan.
