Fruit Basket

2510 E. Loy Road   |  Piqua, Ohio

The family selected this pattern because they own a small business called “Baskets-n-Such” and some family members collect Longaberger Baskets. The current owners purchased the property in 1979 from the Hirsch family, who used it for livestock, hay, straw and machinery storage. In 1982 they added a fruit orchard.

The original part of the barn, which was probably built in early 1900s, was 30 ft. x 50 ft. and is constructed of hand hewn logs, and the frame is pinned together with wooden pins, mostly original materials. Two lean-to’s and two granaries were added to the original structure in 1980. It also has straw and hay mow. The barn has been used for numerous 4-H Halloween parties.

Located east of Piqua. From Piqua take Rt. 36 east past I-75 (if traveling on I-75, take the Rt. 36 exit (#82) and turn right – east – off the ramp) and travel approximately 1 mile to Troy Sidney Road, turn right (south) to E. Loy Rd. Turn left onto Loy(east) and continue about 3 miles – past Union Shelby Road. If you reach Casstown-Sidney Rd., you have passed it. The property is on the south side of the road.
