Newark Things to Do: 13 reviews and 51 photos
Newark is the site of several major manufacturers. The corporate headquarters of basket-maker Longaberger had their new building designed as a gigantic "medium market basket," their most popular model. It is just off the State Highway 16 and is a fantastic sight to behold! The campus is also nice landscaped with a pond that had several canadian geese. The 7 storeyed building is truly a creative marvel, hats off to the architect. The Longaberger Basket Building (tm) is a truely impressive example of Mimetic Architecture, and relatively recent at that. It was the brainchild of the Longaberger Empire Founder Dave Longaberger. One of his famous quote is "If they can put a man on the moon, they can certainly build a building that's shaped like a basket." and that is exactly what they have done! What an advertisement for the company really!
