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.

"Working in glass, this amazing material, frozen at room temperature, flowing like honey at 2000° F, remains my passion.

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

Snowmen have a Heart

Snowmen have a Heart

Sara Hilton     Winter 2018 Homefront

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
