The fake Woodbury Town Hall built for the filming of the hit zombie-themed TV show “The Walking Dead” in the small Georgia town of Senoia. Pronounced "Seh-noy" by its 3,300 residents, Senoia had seen its fortunes fade after the local cotton and agricultural industries died off. But the town now boasts a retail district that grew from six to 49 businesses in half a dozen years, all thanks to the popularity of a television show.
