The Henry River Mill Village in North Carolina was the home of District 12 in The Hunger Games movie. A little while ago, the SyFy Channel tooks bids on the site, but it seems they failed to find a buyer.
The Hickory Daily Record reports:
The SyFy Channel’s show “Hollywood Treasure” and its host Joe Maddalena, who owns Los Angeles-based business Profiles in History, were taking bids on the property and expected to open those bids last week. Minda Gowen, a publicist for Maddalena and his business Profiles in History, said “The Hunger Games” property did not find a buyer during the 90-day period that Maddalena had the option to sell it.
“Joe is no longer putting it up for auction but he hopes the owner will find the right buyer eventually,” Gowen said.
While no one with a briefcase full of money has shown up, plenty of “Hunger Games” fans have. The village was the location for a reunion on Saturday of those who worked at the mill or grew up in the village. And Shepherd said cars from across the country are still flocking to the site to see the place that became the home district of the movie’s heroine Katniss Everdeen.
