Hongyan Revolutionary Memorial Museum lies along the bank of the
Jialing River, which comprises Red Cliff Village 13, Zengjia Cliff
50, Guiyuan Garden, and the former site of "Xinhua
Daily". The place used to be the southern bases for CPC
Central Committee during the anti-Japanese war. Because of their
outstanding performance in the war, people established the museum
to commemorate them.
Red Cliff Village 13 was mainly a three-floor building built by the
official staffs of the South Bureau and the Eighth Route Army at
that time. It functioned as accommodation and office for Mao
Zedong, Zhou Enlai and other leaders. The most important fact was
that the Red Cliff Village used to be a world famous political
center of CPC Central Committee during the war. So that museum
displays many revolutionary relics used by official leaders.
