In June of 2011, the Antiques Roadshow crew visited Nirod for a segment on antique fishing gear at the Eagle Rock Lodge. The History Channel’s American Pickers show is now scouting places to film episodes of the series in Oregon.
The documentary series explores the world of antique “picking” by following skilled professionals who hunt for America’s most valuable antiques. The show’s producers say they are always excited to find sizeable, unique collections and learn the interesting stories behind them.
Over several years segments have hit the back roads from coast to coast,. Along the way, crew members have met characters with remarkable and exceptional items. At times the show has highlighted historically significant objects and illuminated a thing or two about America’s past along the way.
“The Pickers have seen a lot of rusty gold over the years and are always looking to discover something they’ve never seen before,” according to Jasmina Joseph, producer of American Pickers. “They are ready to find extraordinary items and hear fascinating tales about them.”
Joseph said the show is looking for leads and would love to explore hidden treasures. “We at American Pickers continue to take the pandemic very seriously and will be following all guidelines and protocols for safe filming outlined by the state and CDC.,” he said. “Nevertheless, we are excited to continue reaching the many collectors in the area to discuss their years of picking and are eager to hear their memorable stories.”
