A little about my hometown - Muncie IN

I grew up knowing that our city was named after Chief Munsee, turns out a lot of people were wrong. The Lenape Native Americans deemed our city Wapicamikunk. Although, early settlers referred to it as Munsee Town, named after the dialect of the Lenape Native Americans who spoke Munsee. The Muncie we call home was born in 1865 when Munsee Town became the City of Muncie.

Ball Jars – how many arts and craft projects would not exist without us?

With the Gas Boom came the Ball Brothers, a family rooted at the heart of Muncie’s development. The Ball Brothers are known for bringing Ball Corporation to Muncie, Indiana. When you think of canning jars you have to think of us.
