Henry River Mill Village

20 Henry River Road, Hildebran, North Carolina 28637 USA

“Historic textile ghost town featured in The Hunger Games film.”

This place is on private property. Listing for informational purposes only. Please do not visit without express permission from the land owner. Henry River Mill Village is a small textile village in Burke County, North Carolina. It is an important remnant of the change in American lifestyle from an agrarian society to an industrial society. It is the most intact and unaltered example of an early industrial environment in Burke County. Today the remaining buildings of the Henry River mill village speak eloquently of the industrial heritage of Burke County, North Carolina. Built as a planned community, Henry River Mill Village was a self-contained complex with its own mill, dam, water and fire-protection systems, and company store. In later years the village gained amenities such as walkways, terraced green spaces, and field stone retaining walls. Today most of the village's original buildings remain sited along a small gorge of the Henry River, just west of Catawba County, North Carolina. The site is private property but can be driven through via Henry River Road. The 72 acre village was used as the filming location of many scenes of the 2012 film The Hunger Games, which itself was filmed entirely on location in North Carolina. Henry River Mill village was the site of filming for the movie film production Artemis, which is the working title for the movie based on the novel The Hunger Games. It is located a short distance from Interstate 40 via Exit 119 which is named the Henry River exit. Filming location- used as District 12 in the Hunger Games!

We drove through on a Saturday morning about a month ago and no sooner did we pull into the drive, a white truck tailgated us until we left. We didn't have a chance to get out and take pictures but we still drove through s l o w l y and enjoyed the view ;) This village was currently up for sale through Coldwell Banker. Hope whoever buys it allows people to stop and enjoy it once more!

Alright so I don't know how many people will believe this story but it is 100% true. I'm 23 years old and I have never been so scared in my life. Me, my girlfriend, and a few friends went here in the middle of the night on a Wednesday a while back. We went down a small vegetated road that was supposed to lead to the damn. Suddenly we all stopped talking and we began to hear voices: 3 men having a conversation. My girlfriend stayed back with my other friend while me and Wendell went to check it out. We slowly crept up to where the voices were and saw 3 men in the moonlight. They were all wearing old like 1900s work clothes. We sat there and listened to them for about 30 seconds scared out of our minds. Suddenly they all turned at us with wide smiles on their faces. My blood went cold and me and my friend ran away as fast as we could back to our car with my other friend and my girlfriend wondering what the fuck was going on. I have never been as scared again in my life.

You're basically driving through history. The town started in 1905 and the main building in town, the old red brick company store, was built in 1907. It is incredibly eerie but so so so neat. Visit if you get the chance!!
