You can see the eagle and statue in Dresden. I was unable to access anything at the Homestead. The best view for the Basket in Newark is from Wilson's Garden Center. No work has begun on the Basket by the new owners.

Longaberger has taken a dive since moving the pottery to CHINA here is an example of my pottery plates made in the USA vs. China. The Pottery form the USA is older and will not scratch and scuff as it is being used.
