New TV show being shot at the Kilby Historic Site

Producer Ridley Scott is among big names present on set in Harrison Mills

The Man in the High Castle may be just the thing to put Kilby Historic Site on the map.

As The Observer goes to press, the set of The Man in the High Castle is already transforming the Harrison Mills location into scenes for the upcoming filming on April 7 and 8.

Production will take place Thursday and on Friday of this week.

Series creator Frank Spotnitz, known for his work on The X-Files, is executive producer for the ten-episode second season along with Ridley Scott and Philip K. Dick’s daughter, Isa Dick Hackett.

The series was originally released during Amazon’s pilot season in early 2015 and was the service’s most watched pilot.

“We are grateful for the movie scout that found us as a possible location,” said Jo-Anne Leon, Kilby Historic Site’s sales and marketing manager. “Just like many of our visitors this location scout was just driving by when he decided to explore our area.”

The Kilby Historic Site is operated by a charitable, non-profit society with the mandate to preserve and interpret the history of the Kilby family and surrounding area.

Opportunities such as these provide the site with much needed revenue to start the season, Leon said.

She invites the public to keep updated on the project through our social media and to look for the site in the coming season of The Man in the High Castle.

“Bear with us during these two days as there will be no access to the Kilby Park during this time,” she said.

The Kilby museum, restaurant and gift shop will remain open weekends through April from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
