Good Ol' Muncie was my home for 4 years during college at Ball State University. In the past, Muncie was a thriving city fueled by the auto industry and other manufactures. However, after the closing of quite a few of their auto plants, the university and Ball Memorial Hospital are the two largest employers of the city. These two institutions are pretty much keeping the city moving forward. With that being said, Muncie does have a historic downtown that has undergone major improvements to bring it back to life. Below you will see pictures of downtown.
