According to a report by CNBC.com, Henry River Mill Village, one of the shooting locations of The Hunger Games in NC, is for sale by its owner.
Henry River Mill Village played a starring role as the setting for protagonist Katniss Everdeen’s slum. Dozens of fans were already driving by the site before the movie premiere, according to a local news report on the Hildebran website.
Now, the owner of the 72-acre property, Wade Shepherd, told the AP that the area is getting bombarded by fans driving by and taking photos “day and night.”
While he’s not a “Hunger Games” fan and hasn’t read the books, he has seized upon the fever by putting the property up for sale at a price of $1.4 million. Shepherd, 83, who lives across the river from Henry River Mill Village, told The Associated Press he bought the property to protect his interests. Shepherd did not immediately respond to a request for comment from CNBC.
