When I went, sadly the building was closed. Take a drive down the road a bit for an actual giant basket, about the size of a house.

Giant Basket

The Longaberger basket company headquarters is housed in a BIIIIIIGGGGG basket. It is so enormous, it is almost scary.

When first built, a local pilot flew his small Cessna type plane through the handle of it. I believe he got in a bit of trouble but I would have loved to have seen it.
