World's Largest Basket

world's largest basketThis monument is, in fact, the world's largest basket, and it's also the seven-story corporate headquarters of the Longaberger Basket Company. Completed in December 17, 1997, the basket is a replica -- 160 times larger -- of Longaberger's Medium Market Basket. It's 192 ft (59m) long by 126 ft (38m) wide at the bottom, spreading to 208 ft (63m) long by 142 ft (43m) wide at the roofline. It is a magnificent site -- especially at night.
