Town used as a set for ‘The Walking Dead’ for sale on eBay

(WXIA)  You’ll find all sorts of things for sale on Craigslist and eBay, including a small southern town.

Downtown Grantville, Georgia is currently for sale on eBay.

Former Grantville Mayor Jim Sells bought the nine downtown properties out of foreclosure during the recession. Now he’s ready to hand over the keys to someone with more experience owning commercial property.

“The hard work has been done,” said Sells, referring to renovations. “We’re looking for somebody to put it all into action.”

Grantville is a former textiles town, but when the mills closed in the ’70s and ’80s many of the jobs and residents left. Now there’s a new industry.

“Our main industry right now is ‘Walking Dead’ tourists,” Sells says.

The season three episode “Clear” was filmed downtown.
