The Basket BuildingThe Basket Building

This basket building, owned by the Longaberger company, perfectly symbolizes its major product—the maple wood basket.

This building houses the Longaberger corporate staff located near Dresden, Ohio.

This novelty architecture was established in 1997 and consisted of 180,000 square foot of space with seven stories.

The handle-like structure of the building weighs nearly 150 tons and has the capability of being heated in order to prevent damage from ice during the cold, snowy months.

This basket building concept was the brainchild of the original founder of the company, Mr. Dave Longaberger—but unfortunately, the original Mr. Longaberger was not able to see his dream building for his company.
