What Bert Has To Say About Muncie Metro Area


Muncie is an agricultural center with a college-town element and a variety of industries. In the 19th century the Ball family started manufacturing canning jars, and Ball jars are still the world standard. The family business endowed Ball State University, a mid-sized school with an attractive campus and and good reputation. The college-town influence and private endowments bring above-average healthcare and a few arts amenities. The Cost of Living Index is one of the lowest in the state and a good value for what’s available. Housing is also very reasonable.
