You Can Own A Piece of “The Hunger Games”

posted by Nell Minow

Profiles in Histor announced today that it has acquired the Henry River Mill Village property, better known as “District 12” from the box office blockbuster “The Hunger Games.” The property will be auctioned off via sealed bid through Profiles in History with a bidding deadline of July 31, 2012. The property is valued in excess of 1.2 million dollars.  

This unique acquisition will be shown on Syfy’s show Hollywood Treasure on Tuesday, June 5, 2012 at 10PM PDT. Viewers will be able to watch Joe and his team visiting “District 12,” meeting with the owner and watch as Joe is able to get the owner to entrust him to sell this ‘collectors dream’. The new season of Hollywood Treasure premieres this Tuesday, May 22 on Syfy at 10PM PDT.

“District 12” is in reality the Henry River Mill Village, a 1920s, 72-acre abandoned mill town located in North Carolina. The property exists exactly as it is seen in the film, from the bakery owned by Peeta Mellark’s family to the house where Katniss Everdeen and her sister Prim lived. It is all there.  It is not a set.  The production used the town buildings as they were.  Who do you think will bid?
