Longaberger Basket Home Office


No matter how menial the tasks, 500 employees of Longaberger Basket Co. could once take solace in the fact that working inside a seven-story-tall basket was a real picnic while it lasted. Modeled after one of its own baskets, the company put $30 million into the 160x larger corporate headquarters version. It's now up for sale, but the building equipped with 150-ton handles and two 725lb gold leaf painted tags remains a sight to see. Other Longaberger creations can be found nearby, like the house-sized wicker picnic basket from the original headquarters in Dresden and the 29ft-tall apple basket in Frazeysburg.
