'Hunger Games' town up for sale

Now’s your chance to own a piece of “Hunger Games” history.... if you've got at least a cool million on hand.

You know that abandoned mill town in North Carolina where much of the blockbuster movie was filmed?

Well it’s for sale, courtesy of its owner, reports the U.K.'s Guardian.

The price tag for Henry River Mill Village, which covers 72 acres, is reportedly $1.4 million.

It's where many scenes for “Hunger Games” heroine Katniss Everdeen's District 12 were filmed, but in real life, the yarn mill that the town was centered around shut down in the 1960s, and the last resident packed up in 1987.

North Carolina lures 'Hunger Games' fans

The mill itself burned down in 1977 but at least 20 other structures remain - including a company store that was turned into a family bakery for the film, where Katniss meets Peeta Mellark in a flashback.

    Art, you really suck at trolling. It sounds like you are giving an opinion on watching trailers. Either you didn't see the movie or you simply struggle with communicating with someone older than 10. The plot must have flown by you faster than Lohan out of jail.

    Don't see this movie. Boring and not believable. Bunch of overweight people are starving, so 18yo men kill 12yo girls. Great screen writing, eh? Save your $12 and rent it at Redbox for a buck later on. Richard Roeper loved it. What a dummmmy. -Art

    Ha, one blogger described how Gary Ross showed the people in district 12 as "citizens in a Sunday-best that looks more like the mass-produced, compulsory linen of a concentration camp"

    This is probably a good investment. Will be worth a lot of money because of the movie. I wish I could afford it.
