"District 12" Location Of 'The Hunger Games' To Be Auctioned

While most are still crazy with Avengers fever, there are still plenty of Hunger Games fans that feel their movie is the best of the year.  Because of that fervor, the team at Profiles In History have made another amazing acquisition.

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.

Joe Maddalena of Profiles In History called a, "..once in lifetime opportunity."

While there are already Hunger Games tours that visit the films NC locations, this town is not one of them.  It is private property and not open to the public.  This means if you get caught there, you're trespassing and will be taken to The Capitol for punishment.    

So, Mockingjay's, start saving your pennies or hope that your sponsors come through for you.  The property is being auctioned off via sealed bid, and the deadline for bids is July 31st.  For information on how to bid, or to order a copy of their auction catalog, please visit www.profilesinhistory.com.      

New episodes of Hollywood Treasure air Tuesday nights on Syfy.  You'll be able to see Joe and his team visit the location on the June 5th episode.

What say you?
