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 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.

Sara Hilton     Spring 2021 Homefront

It was the old west when cowboys were real and the cattle drives were long. It didn’t matter how many miles had been travelled, there at the end of a long hard day on the range, the chuck wagon rolled in, a traveling cook and his wagon offering a hot meal and bit of home for the weary and hungry cowboys.
