Now you can own an actual piece of Walking Dead memorabilia for the price of just $680,000, which is a steal when you consider you are getting a quaint Georgia town.
For those who have a million to blow on several buildings, head on over to eBay to bid on a slice of television history.
You see the story is garnering attention for more than being an Internet sale of a bunch of buildings. The area was also used in the “Clear” episode of The Walking Dead, when Andrew Lincoln’s Rick Grimes meets an old friend. Well, an old friend who has since gone a bit nuts:
Kruger spoke with former Mayor Jim Sells who expounded on the sale. When asked if all of Grantville was for sale, Sells offered, “Well, downtown is.”
The eBay listing states: “This is an opportunity for someone to own a piece of history. The City of Grantville is a vibrant community just south of Newnan, Georgia. This downtown area is always being scouted by the movie industries and has been home to several blockbusters as well as TV shows like the Walking Dead who have filmed several episodes in the downtown area. This is a money maker for anyone trying to invest in an area that's about to burst.”
As Sells continued, you are getting more than just nine buildings that may be repurposed to attract visitors: “Our main industry right now is Walking Dead tourists.”
The former mayor continues, “We have people coming from all over the world because of the Walking Dead; that's paying the bills downtown.”
Sells also states that the town underwent recent renovations to the 25,000 square feet available to the potential buyer.
As the eBay listing promises, you are getting a whopping 90 percent of the downtown area, which is something of a haven for those who can’t get enough of post-apocalyptic America.
We might only suggest refraining from posting the kind of traps that featured in the episode that made this small part of the state such an icon for zombie lovers.
