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 3 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.
Theodore Roosevelt, the 26th POTUS (President of the United States, [R], 1901 – 1908), recently announced that he has chosen Tecumseh as the place where he will celebrate his 157th birthday. His choice of venue was unexpected but not unprecedented.
Roosevelt was the first sitting president to visit our State Capitol, not far from this city. It is presumed that many local citizens made the trip to Lansing to see and hear the Rough Rider President when he visited Lansing, even though it was an arduous journey at the time. Read more

Some people avoid ghosts. Others go looking for them.
Jeff Westover, author of "Ghost Highway: A Photographic Elegy for Southern Michigan", has seen more than a fair share of supernatural encounters. Composed of infrared photographs of the Irish Hills area, the book is a collection of pictures that is a result of Westover's exploration of the Irish Hills area. Read more
Spend an afternoon with local goat milk soaper Kim Niblack at Moon Flower Goat Farm on Pennington Road in Tecumseh, and it is easy to see where she gets her inspiration for creating her handmade, all-natural goat milk skin care products. First, there is the white farm house that sits to the right of the drive, in the shade of trees with the windows open to capture the breeze, that even on the warmest of summer days, brings a sense of peace and calm.

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 paper clip 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.
