The famous pickers recently made a stop in Corinth, searching for gems at Lake Hill Motors & Marine.

The business’ museum of vintage motorcycles is a treasure trove for the crew of “American Pickers,” a History Channel show that recently shot a segment at the Highway 72 East location.

According to the business owners, the producers informed them the episode will air at 8 p.m. Monday.

In the program, the pickers “are on a mission to recycle America, even if it means diving into countless piles of grimy junk or getting chased off a gun-wielding homeowner’s land. Hitting back roads from coast to coast, the two men earn a living by restoring forgotten relics to their former glory, transforming one person’s trash into another’s treasure. American Pickers follows them as they scour the country for hidden gems in junkyards, basements, garages and barns, meeting quirky characters and hearing their amazing stories.”

The show has been spending some time in the region. Last week’s episode included a visit with Savannah’s Wayne Jerrolds, a fiddle master who played with Bill Monroe and Loretta Lynn.
