Henry River Mill Village

From its days making cotton yarn to its more recent adaptation as District 12 in the Hunger Games, the Historic Henry River Mill Village offers you and your guests a unique experience that will stand the test of time.

Located 1 mile south of Hildebran, NC on I-40 (exit 119), the Henry River Mill Village is an easy, 1 hour drive from Charlotte and Asheville airports. This makes Henry River a convenient and easy to find location for your guests.

The Henry River Mill Village property spans 72 acres of the beautiful North Carolina foothills and is nestled in the valley of the Henry Fork River. This location creates a one-of-a-kind feel as if guests are on their own private getaway in the mountains of North Carolina.

Henry River offers multiple ceremony site options on the property, so whether you are looking for a pop culture backdrop, that unique industrial feel, or want to celebrate your special day surrounded by the beauty of mother nature, Henry River has it all.

Make your special day one for the history books with our Bridal and Groom suites located in our 116 year old, entirely restored and renovated, House 12. Each suite has 2 full bathrooms with their own theme: Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue, along with a living room, upstairs loft, refrigerator, microwave, and enough room to sleep 4-6 adults per suite.

Whether you are treating your wedding party to a unique overnight experience or looking to create unique memories with your special someone, House 12 will ensure you create a moment straight from a fairy-tale on your special day.
