The owner of Henry River Mill Village, where The Hunger Games‘ District 12 scenes were shot in North Carolina, is selling the property.
The sale will be documented on the Syfy show Hollywood Treasures.
From the press release:
The property will be auctioned off via sealed bid through Profiles in History with a bidding deadline of July 31, 2012. The property is valued in excess of 1.2 million dollars.
This unique acquisition as Joe Maddalena has said, “Is a once in a lifetime opportunity,” and will be shown on Syfy’s hit show Hollywood Treasure on Tuesday, June 5, 2012 at 10PM PDT. Viewers will be able to watch Joe and his team visiting “District 12,” meeting with the owner and watch as Joe is able to get the owner to entrust him to sell this ‘collectors dream’. The new season of Hollywood Treasure premieres this Tuesday, May 22 on Syfy at 10PM PDT.
“District 12” is in reality the Henry River Mill Village, a 1920s, 72-acre abandoned mill town located in North Carolina. The property exists exactly as it is seen in the film, from the bakery owned by Peeta Mellark’s family to the house where Katniss Everdeen and her sister Prim lived. It is all there. Production came into the town and shot directly on site and didn’t need to change a thing.
The episode will air Tuesday, June 5 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Syfy! It should be interesting to see a new behind-the-scenes look at the land.
