Tecumseh is my home town that I have lived in for eighteen years, it is a small family friendly town. There is a small up town and down town area that has many shops and things to do. Overall the population is not overly large yet not too small that you do not see anybody. The schools are in the works right now, getting the best system they can for the kids living in Tecumseh. There are many parks, playgrounds, and jobs that can be found in Tecumseh.

Tecumseh is a very cute little town; however, it lacks diversity along with things to do-there is very little shopping or recreational things available.
Tecumseh is a great little town. It is home to the Appleumpkin Festival, Ice Sculpture Festival, and many fun in-town activities. Tecumseh has a great youth theater program for younger teenagers that enjoy acting and musicals. There are many parks for parents to take their children to to blow off steam. Overall, Tecumseh is a great family friendly little town for all to enjoy.
