To train cadres to meet the needs of the rapidly developing worker-peasant movement in the First Revolutionary Civil War (1924-1927), Comrade Mao Tsetung headed and directed the National Institute of the Peasant Movement in Guangzhou from May 1926. The Institute enrolled 327 trainees from 20 provinces and regions in the country. Comrades Chou En-Iai, Hsiao Chu-nu, Peng Pai and Yun Tai-Ying were among the teachers.

Studies at the Institute centered on Marxism-Leninism and the peasant question the basic question of the Chinese revolution. Comrade Mao Tsetung personally lectured on the question of Chinese peasants, rural education and other subjects, and gave 'special lectures on his brilliant article 's analysis of the Classes in Chinese Society".

The Institute advocated a revolutionary style of study that integrated theory with practice. The trainees were organized in research groups according to regions to study the situation of the peasant movement in different provinces They were sent for experimental work in rural areas of Haifeng and Shaoguan in Guangdong Province where they took an active part in important political activities in society in order to temper themselves through actual struggle Comrade Mao Tsetung educated the trainees in the concept of "armed struggle" and gave them strict military training so they would become revolutionary cadres capable of doing propaganda work among the masses, organizing them and leading the armed struggle.

In September 1926 the courses concluded. Acting on Comrade Mao Tsetung's teachings the trainees left for various parts of the country to guide the peasant movement under the leadership of the Party and start the armed struggle against imperialism and feudalism.

After liberation, the Party and people's government repaired and restored the site of the Institute.
