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 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.
"Working in glass, this amazing material, frozen at room temperature, flowing like honey at 2000° F, remains my passion. So important for the modern world, so beautiful for the artistic world, its luster will never dull, its vivid color will never fade." Tecumseh resident Christopher Doan has enjoyed the hobby of lampworking since he was a young man. Now that he is retired, Doan finally can share his Read more
The League of Women Voters was founded in 1920, six months before the ratification of the 19th Amendment which gave women the right to vote. In the early days, the League of Women Voters worked to provide non-partisan education and information to millions of women who were voting for the very first time. Since then, the League has grown into a respected, non-partisan organization for both men and women that works to promote informed citizen participation at all levels of government.
In May of 2018, a group of women started a Tecumseh chapter of the League. "I found that we'd sit around and Read more
In September of 2018, Hurricane Florence devastated parts of the Carolinas. Sensational disaster images filled the media, and resources poured in from around the country. However, as the attention faded and news coverage moved on to other stories, thousands of Hurricane Florence victims remained in mass trauma.
After disasters like hurricanes, the Red Cross puts out a volunteer call to licensed mental health professionals. Mental health professionals are a critical element in the recovery process as they help victims to both process what has happened and to navigate their first few steps out of the trauma. Donna McCarrell, who owns Perspectives, a counseling service in Tecumseh, has volunteered Read more
Do the best Snowmen have a heart? Tecumseh author Frances Sneed thinks so. "The Best Snowmen Have a Heart" is her delightful wintertime fantasy full of whimsy, suspense, and deep life lessons. "The story was just going to be about a boy looking for his snowman," said Sneed. "However, as I wrote it it turned out to be more. There is a strong thread of healing from deep disappointments and hurts. I've had adults buy it for that reason and read it themselves before they pass it on to a child."
The story traces the evolution of Elisha, a young boy who is devastated when 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.
