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 5 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.

The Croswell Turns 150!

Erik Gable    Spring 2016 Homefront

The Croswell Opera House, Michigan’s oldest theater and a mainstay of downtown Adrian, marks its 150th anniversary in 2016. But although the theater is spending this year celebrating its rich past, the future is what’s really in the spotlight.
The Croswell is about to embark on one of the biggest renovation projects in its 150-year history. And at the same time, it’s continuing to stage more and more ambitious productions — making Adrian a destination for theater lovers from around the region. "We're building a reputation that goes far beyond Adrian, far beyond Lenawee County," said Jere Righter, the Read more

Healing Touches

Healing Touches

Daniel Koster and his colleagues would like to dispel a common misconception about massage: it should not be considered a luxury. Koster emphasizes the health aspect of the ancient healing art. "It's called therapeutic massage for a reason," Koster said. "We specialize in better health through a variety of techniques." Koster's specialty is massage, including myofascial, Swedish, orthopedic, and myokinesthetic massage, all of which have special applications for an individual's health and relief of pain, if the latter is part of a personal health concern. Koster's wife Lisa Barley along with associate Amber Houttekier are highly skilled yoga instructors, specializing in the ancient Read more


Share your Life

"The ultimate gift is to give somebody life." These are the words of Monica Andrews, a Tecumseh Police Department dispatcher who lost her brother, Jeffrey Dixon, unexpectedly nine years ago. While the family mourned his loss, they made the decision to donate his organs to give others a chance at the life Dixon lost. "All of his friends and family were there. The social worker came to ask us, and it was a unanimous decision that it would be his choice," Andrews said. "We all knew what kind of person Jeff was, so it was a pretty quick decision." Read more

Lopez Traditions

Lopez Traditions

Most of us have them. Whether it's centered around a holiday or another type of gathering, there are likely certain things you do that may have been passed down from generation to generation with cultural influences. Or perhaps you've made up your own tradition. One well-known, large family in the area carries on at least two traditions passed on by their parents. If you grew up in the Tecumseh area in the ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s, chances are you know one or more of the children of Minerva and Atanacio (Nacho) Lopez of Ridgeway. If not, perhaps you remember reading about the Lopez family. In 1987 Tecumseh High School presented both Mom and Dad Lopez with honorary diplomas in Read more
