One of the main locations used for The Hunger Games has just gone on the market.
Henry River Mill Village in North Carolina, which covers 72 acres, was turned into District 12 last spring for the movie. It’s abandoned buildings served as the Everdeen residence, District 12’s train station, the famous bakery owned by Peeta’s family, and more.
Wade Shepherd, who has owned the once thriving mill village since the 1970s, has recently put the property up for sale for $1,400,000. He claims he isn’t trying to cash in on the success of The Hunger Games, but is merely “estate planning.”
But, he is quick to point out the potential the property holds since being featured in the film. “It’s unreal how many people have come,” he said. He estimates upwards of 5,000 visitors so far. “On the weekends it starts at sunup and goes all the way until dark.”
And, the sequel may have been postponed, but it will definitively happen which means potential buyers can look forward to cashing in on the next film too.
If you want to visit District 12 yourself, you can find the ghost town located just outside of Hildebran, NC. The best way to find it is to map the nearest address: 4254 Henry River Rd, Hickory, NC.
