This area is known for Longaberger baskets...and the man behind the woven magic is cherished in the hearts of those who knew him. Three years ago Dave Longaberger passed, and left a grand tradition of a true friend and loving man. Friday afternoon at the Longaberger Homestead, the memorial to Dave was unveiled to the public. It is a fitting tribute to the characteristcs of Dave: trust, friendship, intergrity and a belief in people. The memorial consists of three portions: an eagle representing Dave's dreams and patriotic pride, quotes along a pathway, and a waterfall with a statue of Dave looking out in a visionary manner.
