GEORGETOWN, Ky. (FOX 56) — An antiquing celebrity spent the weekend soaking up some Kentucky history.

You may recognize him from the History Channel’s American Pickers.

Mike Wolfe, a professional antiquer, travels across America to scour the nation’s back roads for hidden gems and forgotten relics and tell the stories of the people they meet along the way.

Wolfe spent the day filming in Scott County over the weekend and even paid a visit to an area museum.


“He loved our building, the railroad exhibit, the horse paintings, and of course Pete the Crow! He couldn’t stay for long, but rest assured, our Museum director, Ruthie Stevens, gave him a quick look around,” the Georgetown and Scott County Museum said.

Georgetown and Scott County Tourism said the city’s feature is part of the Bluegrass Region’s Joy Ride Campaign, which supplied the region with $500,000 for tourism-driven marketing and advertising campaigns.

“Stay tuned to find out how you can take a Joy Ride through the bluegrass very soon,” Georgetown and Scott County Tourism said.
