The Longaberger Basket


The Longaberger Company headquarters is a basket, arising on the east side of Newark, Ohio.

As a long-time Newark resident, it was always amusing to watch visitors heading east on State Route 16 east of downtown. You can’t actually see the basket until you top a crest on the expressway and there it is. Experienced local drivers know to watch for brakelights as visitors try to figure out this big basket looming on the edge of town.

Getting an interesting image of the basket isn’t as easy as it sounds. While it’s tucked away along the side of an expressway, trees and traffic obscure much of the view.
