About the HF Chronicle

The H-F Chronicle is the only newspaper dedicated to covering the Homewood-Flossmoor community. With new stories published daily online at HFChronicle.com, the print edition comes out monthly, reaching more than 12,000 readers.

A great community deserves a great newspaper. The HF Chronicle was created in June 2014 as the Homewood Chronicle, but we soon realized Homewood and Flossmoor are so interconnected that it makes better sense to cover both villages. Our mission is to chronicle the life of our community — news by, for, and about the people of Homewood and Flossmoor, Illinois.

The HF Chronicle formed an LLC late in 2014 with three managing members, Eric Crump, Marilyn Thomas and Tom Houlihan. They also serve as editors. 

The HF Chronicle joined the Illinois Press Association in 2015 and the Local Independent Online News association in 2019.
