This is the place where the Chinese Communist Party decided to revolt against the alliance with the Kuomintang which eventually led to the Long March, civil war and of course victory for the CCP. The front building is basically the hotel where the meeting took place and where the various people stayed. It's nice to see how the hotel was... More
