I have visited Longaberger ' s Homestead several times over the years. The first time I went it was a booming, beautiful establishment (lush grounds, multiple buildings, a basket lovers dream). Not the case anymore. The grounds are falling into disrepair. Most buildings have closed...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

My wife and I were Longaberger basket cases back in the sales heyday of 1995-2000 and we hadn't been back for over 10 years. We now wish we had not returned and left the memories as they were. We're not sure if we are angry,...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.
