The location that was used as "District 12" in The Hunger Games is being put up for auction this year. That's right Mockingjay's, you could walk down the same roads as Katniss and Peeta. That is if you have a minimum of $1.2 million to spare, which is what the minimum bid will be.
The location of "District 12" is a 72-acre abandoned mill town in North Carolina named Henry River Mill Village. According to the press release:
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.
