Well, more than you kind of already do, anyway. Or will within the next five years. ANYWAY. The North Carolina ghost town where they shot some of the District 12 scenes from The Hunger Games can be yours for a cool $1.4 million.
Henry River Mill Village, which covers 72 acres, was used by producers to shoot scenes in District 12, where the film's heroine Katniss Everdeen lives in Gary Ross's dystopian science-fiction film. The mill itself, which produced fine yarn, closed some time in the 1960s and the last resident moved out in 1987. The building burned down in 1977, but more than 20 others remain including the company store which doubled for the family bakery where Everdeen encounters Peeta Mellark in a flashback scene.
"I'm getting too many visitors," the ghost town's owner, Wade Shepherd, 83, of Transylvania County told the Associated Press. "Day and night, they're driving through, taking pictures, getting out and walking. I'm just bombarded with people." (Via.)
If I were Wade Shepherd I'd just line the town's perimeter with tracker jackers to keep the squeeing Katniss fanatics out, but I guess trying to make a million and a half bucks works too.
