The abandoned Hildebran village site made famous in this spring’s “The Hunger Games” film is back on the market.
The Los Angeles-based auction house, Profiles in History, had been seeking bids for the 72-acre Henry River Mill village that stood in for “District 12” in the movie.
But the Hickory Daily Record reports that no bids were submitted prior to the July 31 deadline, and Profiles in History owner Joe Maddalena is no longer putting it up for auction. But the property’s owner still wants to sell the property, the newspaper reported.
The old mill town property, which still has about 20 buildings intact, is located just near the Burke and Catawba county border. It has been valued at more than $1.2 million.
Never miss a local story.
Wade Shepherd has owned the village since 1975, though has been trying to sell the property for years. He agreed to allow Profiles in History to auction off the property. It was featured during a June 5 episode of the Syfy Channel’s “Hollywood Treasure” reality show.
