HILDEBRAN, N.C. — An abandoned mill town in Burke County that was used to film scenes from “The Hunger Games” is for sale for $1.4 million.

The Guardian reported that Wade Shepherd, 83, of Transylvania County, is selling Henry River Mill Village after all the visitors the ghost town has attracted.

The location covers 72 acres and was used by producers to shoot scenes in District 12, where the story’s heroine Katniss Everdeen lives. The land also includes a building used for the family bakery in the movie.

The mill reportedly produced fine yarn and closed in the 1960s. The last resident reportedly moved out in 1987. The Guardian reported that the building burned down in 1977, but more than 20 others remain.

The movie is based on Suzanne Collins’ novel about 24 children forced to fight to the death. It was filmed entirely in North Carolina.
