Deserted Village: Hunger Games Location

Buildings are quite worn down looking, with mostly boarded up windows, and $15 for a tour seems excessive. Doesn't look like much preservation has been done.

Looks like they just started tours... 10, 12, and 2pm... fee? Lots of No Trespassing signs. Roped off.

Deserted Village - Hunger Games Location

Appears someone has purchased the area. You can drive by the houses and bakery but it's roped off. Whoever bought it may be trying to open a tourist spot.

Deserted Village - Hunger Games Location

Just drove by and it looks interesting, but due to the weather we did not stop. There are cones and rope blocking the bakery parking lot and there are a bunch of real estate signs to sell the property. Not sure what this means, but I hope it's not going to be developed.
