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 10 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.
I had a professor in college who taught us how to mosey. He actually made us walk down the road with him in a happy, slow saunter. He said that mosey was an important pace to understand. He said that in life, one needed to know how to mosey at times. It is this word, mosey, that comes to mind as I spend the morning with the mayor of Tecumseh. This time isn't spent in a mayoral office or in a city hall meeting. The time is spent at a Read more

Fifty years ago on the night of August 20, 1968, 250,000 Soviet troops and their rumbling tanks pounded across the Czechoslovakian border. They were there to crush a spring-like rising of liberty and freedom. They were there to uphold the virtue of communism and to tighten their fist-like grip on their iron curtain. That August night in 1968 would change so many things.
The reason for this invasion had nothing to do with a young Czechoslovakian woman visiting relatives in the United States, a woman who didn't Read more
Sara Hilton continues the conversation with Renata's daughter, Andrea Edney — recently named National Press Club President (a continuation of 'An August Night').
Freedom of press — it is one of the many freedoms that Renata Snyder did not know as a child growing up in communist Czechoslovakia. It is this freedom to which Snyder's daughter Andrea Edney has dedicated her career. Edney, who was born and raised in Tecumseh, is an editor with Bloomberg News and was recently elected the 111th president of the National Press Club. "I always try 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.
