The basket building idea was conceived by Dave Longaberger, who wanted all of Longaberger’s buildings to be shaped like baskets. However, he only managed to see the completion of one of the buildings in his lifetime. Further basket building plans were later scrapped and ‘dropped from the basket’ by his daughters.
