Before First Curse

Before the Land Without Magic lost its magic, a magical grove inhabited by Tree Nymphs stood at this location. Thousands of years after Gothel, the last tree nymph, purged the land of all life out of vengeance for humans destroying her home and killing the rest of the tree nymphs, Seattle was built atop the former location of the grove. ("Flower Child")

During Fifth Curse

After a curse is cast over the New Enchanted Forest, a neighborhood known as Hyperion Heights appears in Seattle, home to the cursed fairy tale characters who called the New Enchanted Forest their home. Victoria Belfrey, the cursed counterpart of Lady Tremaine, uses her position as CEO of Belfrey Developments to push the fairy tale characters out of Hyperion Heights and bring the inhabitants of the Land Without Magic in. Henry Mills becomes a failed author and a driver for Swyft and lives elsewhere in Seattle with false memories that his wife and daughter were killed in a fire. ("Hyperion Heights")

Sometime after the curse is cast, a young girl named Lucy arrives in Seattle on an elevated train, during which she reads a more modern edition of the Once Upon a Time book just as the train comes to a stop. Getting off, she heads to an apartment, readies herself, and knocks on the door, and asks the man who answers if he is Henry Mills. When he confirms this, she introduces herself as his daughter, though he believes he doesn't have a daughter, however, she insists he does and that his family needs him. ("The Final Battle Part 2")
