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!
