Since the filming of The Hunger Games, the Henry River Mill Village near Hildebran in North Carolina, has become something of a tourist attraction. The local newspaper, the Hickory Daily Record, is reporting that the site that became District 12 will now be featured on an upcoming episode of Hollywood Treasures on the Syfy Channel
The SyFy Channel was at the village on Tuesday filming an episode of the second season of “Hollywood Treasures,” and the show’s host, Joe Maddalena, was at the village looking for anything left behind from the movie.
The show is a documentary reality show based on Maddalena’s life as he travels the world hunting down Hollywood treasures to sell at auction. Maddalena has been hunting treasures for 26 years and owns a business in Los Angeles, “Profiles in History.”
Maddalena said the episode also could help the property’s owner, Wade Shepherd, sell the village that stood as the home for “The Hunger Games” heroine Katniss Everdeen.
He talked about how beautiful the property is and how people may have the misconception that it’s in the middle of nowhere.
“I think that’s one thing we’ll do on the show is convey how amazing this property is and how amazing this location is,” Maddalena said. “It’s like out of a Norman Rockwell painting.”
Maddalena added, “It’s just a nice experience.”
