Muncie is located in Delaware County in east-central Indiana. As of the 2000 census, the population was 65,287. Muncie is well known as being home of Ball State University and the birthplace of the Ball Corporation. In the late 19th century, Muncie's economic backbone was in manufacturing. Drawn to the region during the Indiana gas boom of the 1880s, many factories sprang up in the area that relied on the combustible natural resource. The Ball Brothers moved their glass factory from Buffalo to Muncie in 1888. Like many mid-sized cities in the Rust Belt, Muncie has had to economically reinvent itself due to the decline of the manufacturing industry in the latter part of the 20th century. Muncie's current economy relies on health care, education, retail, and other service industries. The city of Muncie has lots to offer both residents and visitors, from beautiful gardens to live entertainment and museums. The Ball State Planetarium and Observatory has been a part of the community for more than 30 years. It's equipped with a 70-seat sky theater that reproduces the night sky from virtually any angle. It also offers programs on topics such as planets, galaxies, constellation patterns and black holes. Also located at Ball State University is the Atrium Art Gallery, University Museum of Art and Christy Woods, which includes 18 acres of winding paths and spectacular gardens. Muncie is also home to a Children's Museum with interactive exhibits and a learning center. Downtown Muncie boasts a vibrant arts scene with several galleries, quaint shops and restaurants. An annual ArtsWalk is held on the first Thursday of October in conjunction with Ball State University.
