It's the cities that are growing, not the small towns. Ft Wayne is the biggest city for miles around. Probably the nearest town of any major size is over an hours drive away from Ft Wayne. It's only natural that Ft Wayne would grow when the small towns around it have either been losing population or in a constant state of stagnation for the past 50 to 60 years, I'd venture to say that many, if not most of those who leave would move to Ft Wayne for a good job and still be near their hometown. Plus Ft Wayne gets alot of nationwide publicity for being about the nicest and the cheapest city over 100,000 people in the nation. Nice and cheap is a combination that's hard to beat. And the schools aren't bad for a city of it's size. And it's within a 3 hour drive of several metros over a million, so no wonder people are moving there.
