FORSYTH COUNTY -- The History Channel is looking for old history in Forsyth County, with its show “American Pickers” coming to Georgia.

The show’s stars, Mike Wolfe and Frank Fitz, will be filming episodes throughout the region this winter and are looking for residents in Forsyth County with unique collections and interesting stories.

Lindsey Chase, casting associate for the show, said while there is no deadline, the sooner submissions are received, the better.

With the holidays coming up, she said, the team would like to get a head start on any leads.

The show is a documentary series that explores the world of antiquing, also known as “picking.”

It follows Wolfe and Fitz “as they hunt for America’s most valuable antiques,” a news release said. “They are always excited to find sizeable, unique collections and learn the interesting stories behind them.”

The men only pick private collections, so stores, malls, flea markets, museums, auctions, businesses or anything open to the public will not be considered.

Leads can be sent to or 1-855-old-rust with a name, phone number, location and description of the collection with photos.
