ELKINS, W.Va.  — Locals may recognize the scenery in today’s latest episode of the nationally recognized television series “American Pickers.”

Filming for the reality TV show ‘American Pickers’ with Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz takes place in Elkins earlier this year, with that episode set to air at 9 p.m. today on the History Channel.

Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz from the History Channel’s “American Pickers”series traveled to Elkins earlier this year to rummage through antiques at the home of Ronald and Linda Miller — on the corner of Wilson Street and Worth Avenue.

Gary Shifflett, a neighbor of the family, said the well-known collectors/antique pickers were looking for any treasures they could find.

“They were able to find some old lamps and other antique pieces,” Shifflett said.

Linda Miller and her son Steve will be featured on the show, as they let the television stars take a look around the family’s property.

Shifflett said many people flocked to Wilson Street because they were interested in what was going on during filming.

“They actually pulled into our driveway because their GPS brought them here instead of next door,” Shifflett said. “When you have an Antique Archaeology van parked in your driveway, (the van driven by Wolfe and Fritz) your yard fills up with people pretty quick.”

The show is scheduled to air at 9 p.m. today.

According to the History Channel’s website, Wolfe and Fritz travel across the country “hitting back roads from coast to coast” with hopes of “transforming one person’s trash into another person’s treasure.” The reality show is in its 18th season.
