Calvin Reyes is the owner of the Henry River Mill Village outside the Burke County town of Hildebran in Burke County.

During NC Travel Chat #6, you’ll learn about how Calvin and his family bought the property a few years after the first Hunger Games film finished shooting. However, to its service as the backdrop in a few movie scenes, this was an actual working village. There was a mill, a company store, and everything else you might find in similar mill towns.

Now, I try my best to hold back the Hunger Games fandom but fail more than a few times. If you’re a fan of the movie, please tell me you wouldn’t do the same.

You can visit and tour the village, and it’s possible you might detect some paranormal activity. And even if you don’t believe, our interview with Calvin might convince you otherwise.

And looking ahead, there some new and exciting developments coming soon. I’ll let Calvin go into the details of that. He also shares more about the village’s journey from its past through today.
