The Zunyi Meeting was held at No. 80, Red Flag Road in an old neighborhood. The building itself was the private residence of an army leader in the province and the best mansion in the city in the 1930s.
The central leadership of the Red Army held its famous Zunyi Meeting in January 1935, returning Mao Zedong to a core leadership role. The Red Army then changed its strategy and goals and marched to eventual victory. It was a pivotal time in the Party's history and Zunyi was afterward known as "the city with a favorable change of luck."
The Zunyi Meeting site today is a symbol of Party victory, the pride of Zunyi and a brand for tourism. It was among the first group of cultural sites listed under State protection, and is now a locale for education for youngsters. [wgjian/bbs.dengniao]
