Even though we knew this was no longer a thriving place we wanted to stop by while we were in the area. It was so sad to see the empty parking lot and buildings. We talked to a couple of workers and they said the main shop was still open but we were too early. We still took a walk... 更多

The Basket Company - has closed their headquarter building (but we did stop and get our picture made there) but they are still open at what is called The Homestead. It is a nice facility and has a beautiful big basket of apples outside the factory building. We visited on a Wednesday and it was very slow. There were maybe... 更多
We were very thrilled to see the building, but didn't realize that the headquarters has moved away and the building is closed and deserted! Since it's almost like looking at a photo, it's not worth going out of your way to drive to the empty building.

The tour was interesting, and the guide told us some of what the new management... 更多
I went to the Longaberger Homestead for the first time. It was outstanding. I met many of the Longaberger family and the incredibly talented weavers. I also had an opportunity to weave my own basket with the help of a professional weaver. In fact, the first weaver for the company was onsite and signed the bottom of my basket. I... 更多
The largest basket is a very unique building. There is a movement to have it declared a historic site. Seeing the weavers work is fascinating. There are things available at the homestead that are only available there. Just a few miles is historic Dresden OH. You can find one of a kind items and prototype baskets. Retired baskets can be... 更多
