Minnesotans learned in August that the stars of "American Pickers" would be coming to the Land of 10,000 Lakes in October, but it wasn't until the first week of November that the TV stars were spotted. 

It was Wednesday, Nov. 6, in Wadena when the American Pickers van was found parked outside a home on 2nd Street and Emerson Avenue in the northwest Minnesota city. Along with the van was one of the stars of the show, Mike Wolfe, according to Forum News Service

Later in the day, moving vans and a camper arrived at the site, according to the Wadena Pioneer Journal, which also reported that the home belonged to a former Wadena resident who died in 2018.

No word on when the show will be televised on the History Channel, but the report says it'll likely be at least 3-4 months before it airs. 

The TV show publicized its Minnesota adventure in August, at the time saying it would film episodes of the show throughout the state. It's unclear if they've visited any other Minnesota locations.
