Before the apocalypse, this place was a normal junkyard. At the onset of the epidemic when society crumbled, it was largely abandoned except for a group of survivors who made it their home.
Shortly after the Outbreak, the Scavengers found this place and took it as a shelter. They have Solar power plants and Containers which may serve as living rooms for survivors. Near the Entrance, it has a round fighting pit for Newcomers to prove their worthiness.
Deal with Alexandria
At some point, after the outbreak, the group found a houseboat on a lake full of zombies. They waited for someone to get the supplies on it so that they could then take it from them. After Rick and Aaron took them, Tamiel followed them back to the Alexandria Safe-Zone. There she forced Gabriel to pack all the food supplies of the community and then took him with her.
On their way to find Gabriel, Rick and a few other members of his group ran into the Junkyard group, who took them into the Junkyard. There Rick struck a deal with the group after fighting a walker with spikes, with him agreeing to provide the Junkyard with weapons and supplies in exchange for their assistance in fighting the Saviors. After the deal was made Rick and his group left the Junkyard.
