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.

As he continues his grandfather’s story, the road to this place and Recchia’s love for antique vehicles begins to make sense. These cars and this place is a story of many years and thousands of miles. It is a story that needs to be told Read more

Autumn on our tiny hobby farm means harvesting our very, very small concord grape vineyard. These few rows of vines provide us with enough grapes to make jam and juice to last us much of the year. This year, I decided to celebrate our harvest by finding the perfect grape cocktail. Over the course of a few months, I recruited my husband and Read more

For Reverend Cathi King and the members of First Presbyterian Church in Tecumseh, spiritual growth often requires challenging societal norms and expectations. Their study of scripture, especially the teachings of Christ, inspires them to demonstrate their love of neighbor by working for justice.

The church is part of a national Matthew 25 Initiative launched by the Presbyterian Church U.S.A. (PCUSA). According to presbyterianmission.org, this initiative calls... Read more

“There has never been a time within the department where I’ve gotten the message that I can’t do something because I’m a girl,” said Jodi Hepler, one of four female members of the Clinton Fire Department. It is a message that each of four women echoed about their experience in a predominantly male career. “Sometimes I think it is almost the opposite here,” she said. “There is an over-encouragement for us to do things and to succeed.”

For the first time in the department’s history, Clinton currently has four females on their fire department. Jodi Hepler and Sarah Koski both work as firefighters Read more
