As a renowned historical attraction of Shanghai, the Site of the First National Congress of the Communist Party of China has received 10 million visitors from home and abroad since its opening 50 years ago, with attendance rising to 1.8 million visitors in recent years after rebuilt in 1999. Situated at No.76 Xingye Road, next to Shanghai Xintiandi, a fashionable pedestrian area, the two-story Shikumen building was completed in 1920 as the residence of two Communist Party members. On July 23, 1921, thirteen members held their first national congress of the Communist Party of China here, marking the birth of the Party.

The living room downstairs is the place where the First National Congress of the Chinese Communist Party was held.
After the May Fourth Movement, many Communist groups emerged nationwide. On July 23, 1921, thirteen Communist groups that were selected from all the Communist groups nationwide and represented over 50 Communists in the country held the First National Congress of the Chinese Communist Party. The Communist International also dispatched two deputies to the congress. On July 30, disturbed by a detective from the Police Bureau in the French Concession, the meeting place had to be moved to a yacht on Jiaxing Lake in Zhejiang Province on the last day. The congress approved the founding of the Chinese Communist Party, passed the Communist Party's Constitution, and elected the central organization. From then on, the Chinese revolution entered a new era.
