I was having lunch at a local franchise restaurant when I struck up a conversation with two of the regular customers. Eventually, the topic of things to see came up and thus I found out about the Longaberger basketball and the building it emulated. It was a short drive and it was huge on the interstate and obviously much larger... 更多
The Loneaberger Basket headquarters is closed (but we did stop to have our picture taken) and hopefully the city will save it. Back taxes are due and I think a hotel along the highway would be a great use for the building. Hard to believe they were once a $900,000 Million dollar business.
The Basket office building is abandoned, shut down.. The Longaberger Company has created some great products. No one is sure now however, what to do with this building.
I've driven by the "basket" several times. It's now vacant and the grounds are in disrepair with overgrown weeds encroaching. The exterior of the building needs to be cleaned and the "handles" repainted. Definitely a unique piece of Americana, but not worth going out of your way. Seriously would be a great feature of Abandon America or Life Without People.
It is a nice place to stop and look at from the outside. Since recently moving their corporate headquarters over to where the manufacturing plant is, the public no longer has any access to the interior.

This is the former headquarters of Longaberger Basket company, but the building has been sold. You can see this from the road or go into the parking lot to check out and take photos of this very cool building. You cannot go inside as it is closed, but the Longaberger homestead is about 20 miles east.
The large basket building is an architectural masterpiece. It is now for sale so I did not get to tour the inside. It is an incredible sight!
