The chance to buy a prominent piece of movie history doesn’t come along too often. Sure, there are auctions for costumes and props, but how frequently are locations from movies sold? Not very. An abandoned mill town in North Carolina, Henry River Mill Village, became District 12 for The Hunger Games. The location has seen better days, making it perfect for the rundown District.
Since the release of the movie though, tourists are pouring in. The owner, 83-year-old Wade Shepherd, is over it. He’s selling the 72 acre property for $1.4 million. It really doesn’t seem like a crazy price tag especially considering that the future owner could figure out a way to charge for tours. They could even stage fake reapings and set up a market called The Hob. Just think of the opportunities!
Who’s going in with me?
