Are you a rabid fan of The Hunger Games, the mega hit first movie based on Suzanne Collins‘ popular book series? If so, you now have the option to purchase the entire town that was transformed into District 12, the home district of Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson).
The town’s real name is Henry River Mill Village, and it’s located about 70 miles away from Asheville, North Carolina. 83-year-old Wade Sheperd owns the 72-acre property and states that he’s getting far too many visitors to the town with little to no profit coming his way because of it, leading him to the decision to sell the whole thing for just $1.4 million (or around 35,000 easy payments of $39.99!).
While there’s not a whole lot to be done with a small village in North Carolina, keep in mind that more Hunger Games movies are on the way and there’s a chance (I’ve not read the books and don’t know how much—if at all—District 12 comes into play in the future) that whoever throws down the coin to acquire Henry River Mill Village could find themselves in the middle of The Hunger Games universe.
I say a few hundred thousand of us get in on this and take it over like the hippies of Woodstock—all in favor?
