from the hunger games posted in movies by chewing_the_scenery

The Mellark Bakery where Peeta works in Katniss's flashback in The Hunger Games is the old company store from the abandoned Henry River Mill Village near Hildebran, North Carolina. The village was the company town for the Henry River Manufacturing Company from 1904 until 1977 when the cotton mill burned down. The boarding house and the 35 worker houses in the rest of the village were used as Katniss's district 12 slum from the beginning of the movie.

In April of 2012, the 83 year old property owner put the land up for sale for 1.4 million.
