We didn't actually get to go to this basket building, but instead went to the Longaberger Homestead where you can get a free tour of the factory and shop. This basket is about 16 miles away from the Homestead and has recently been put up for sale. The Longaberger family had to walk away from it because of the amount... More

This delightful little village comes alive on weekends, with its quaint galleries and basket shops. The Giant house sized basket is a real basket made from 10 hardwood maple trees and is a real tribute to it's makers, employees of the Longaberger Basket Factory.

Dresden, Ohio where Longaberger Baskets got their start is charming in every way. A trip there would not be complete without a visit to the World's Largest Basket for a photo opportunity. Longaberger lovers will want to see this basket!

We had the opportunity to make several baskets. The basket maker helped my spouse in doing a Harley Davidson basket.

A must see while in Dresden, Ohio. An icon of The Longaberger Basket Company founded by Dave (Popeye) Longaberger.

This is Longaberger's headquarters. When we stopped there were no tours available. The staff were very friendly and helpful though. The inside is very well kept. The landscaping is not kept up. Parts of the parking lot are barricaded off.

Just a huge basket along the streets of Dresden. I guess a good photo op for the Longaberger consultants.

If you are in to baskets, then Dresden is the place for you ... Since Longaberger has had a downward turn, the town is a bit less full (from shops and what not) -- but there is still enough to do to make it a morning in the Village ...

Sure is amazing to see a basket that large. The building stands out along the main highway and is a true landmark. Impressive piece of architecture.
