The Henry River Mill Village near Asheville in North Carolina, was transformed into District 12 for The Hunger Games. For a while there, it was a hot spot for tourists, wanting to see where Katniss, Peeta and Gale lived, but unfortunately it was closed to the public after a number of vandalism attacks and people stealing parts of the Seam.
The owner had previously put the property up for sale but at that time, there were no buyers. Now it’s up for sale again. According to a report on Huffingtonpost.com the asking price for the Henry River Mill Village is 1.4 million dollars:
We love getting a real-life glimpse of properties that have been featured in hit movies. This is especially true
when the site was part of a mega-million dollar franchise like ‘The Hunger Games‘ — and, surprisingly, the asking price isn’t as painful as we expected. The 72-acre historical Henry River Mill Village in Hickory, North Carolina (which was meant to be the site of Katniss Everdeen’s home in District 12 in the country of Panem) is now on sale for $1.4 million.
Listed on Realtor.com, the expansive property comes with 21 unrestored mills, 5,000 feet of road frontage and (what we think is the best part) 3,500 feet of river frontage. The waterfront estate is a great opportunity to live like our favorite heroine. And although the grounds could use a little TLC, the beautiful setting and the hollywood allure make up for it.

I hope the new owners are able to help keep The Hunger Games District 12 location alive, and have it opened to the public again. And if it is, I hope the visitors treat it with the respect it deserves.
