This place is where Portgas D. Ace and Sabo made their hideout and started hiding the loot that they got from stealing. One day, Luffy overheard their dream of becoming a pirate, and they thought that he should be killed in case he tries to expose them. Before they could do that, Luffy was captured by a big group of Pirates looking for Ace, as he had stolen from them. Eventually, Ace and Sabo manage to defeat them and save Luffy.
After this adventure, Ace lectured Luffy about his carelessness. After this incident, the three became the best of friends and always went on adventures together. They swore that they were sworn brothers from now on.
Sabo's father eventually found him and sent his men to get him back. He told his men that they could do whatever they wanted with Ace and Luffy. As Sabo couldn't see his brothers getting hurt, he said that he'd return without throwing a fit as long as his father let Ace and Luffy go without any harm. Sabo was forced to say that Luffy and Ace had forced him to join him in their crimes. Ace and Luffy were tied to a pole and their protests were ignored. They were going to be set on fire and as they were surrounding them, Ace cut himself and Luffy free and they ran away.
As the Bluejam Pirates caught up to them and asked them where the treasure was, Ace told them. However, the pirates took them both with them in order to verify the location of the treasure. When they got to know that Bluejam wanted to take revenge on the Nobles, Luffy lost it and he fought back and attacked them. As they held and hit Luffy, Ace's Haoshoku Haki activated in anger and knocked them all down. They subdued Ace and were ready to shoot him but the Dadan family came to their rescue and together, they beat Bluejam. Daman was able to get Ace and Luffy to safety but was severely injured by the flames, so they went to their hideout which is next to a river in the forest to treat her wounds.
