The big apple basket is still a great photo op, but most of the once thriving homestead is nearly empty. In fact, the stoplight where cars and busses were backed up for miles is being removed for lack of traffic. The company's former office building,...More

I am not a huge Longaberger fan but it was interesting seeing the museum. I created a basket in their Make-A-Basket workshop. I highly recommend doing this. It is extremely hands on and a good way to have a Longaberger basket. I didn't feel as...More

I wasn't sure what to expect here. It's very true as others have said that this place is something of a ghost town. You can see that at one time it must have been a real blast to come to. However, we took the tour,...More

While we would like to spend more time and we are currently working on the landscaping of the ground but we still are open and feature over 100 different locally handmade baskets inside our store. We also just opened our Maker's Market inside the Homestead...More

The World's Largest Basket! Used to be the office for Longaberger Baskets. The whole building is in the shape of a picnic basket. 15 minutes away from the factory and Longaberger's Homestead. A must see.

Yes, at the factory but not at all times. Call ahead for available hours and park at the factory outlet. Shuttle from the Homestead is no longer running.
