THE American village used to portray District 12 in the film version of The Hunger Games is going up for sale. The run-down, coal-mining area is an abandoned textile mill from the 1920s called Henry River Mill Village in North Carolina. The Profiles in History auction house says it will be sold for at least $1.2 million in July. District 12 is home to the heroes of the Hunger Games, Katniss Everdeen, Peeta Mellark and Gale Hawthorne. The 72 acres of land includes 22 buildings, woodlands, hills and a pond. It is being sold by its owner, 83-year-old Wade Shepherd, who said he had become overwhelmed when the property turned into a hot spot for Hunger Games fans coming to see the Everdeens’ shanty home and the Mellark family bakery.           –BBC
