World's Largest Apple Basket.

Large Apple Basket

The Longaberger Village is still abandoned and the parking lots are blocked off, but the basket has been repainted and is still visible. There is no way to park next to it, though it is possible to park along the side access road and get out for quick photos. Since the basket has been refurbished, maybe there are plans to eventually reopen the closed shops, but nobody that I asked knew for sure.

Saw this and others on your site and had to go for pictures. My grandchildren complained, but once we were there everyone thought it was a great idea. My GPS had us drive right past the entrance but we found our way in. The entrance was not blocked, so we drove in. Nobody was on the premises. It's a large piece of deserted property and quite a shame that it's been left to go to ruins. We took lots of pictures.

This was a beautiful stop. Loved the basket! The business really looks like it's closed down -- more like a ghost town. I'd read that it was closed until April, but it just looked closed down and out of business. Either way, you still can go and see the basket.
