Riel House National Historic Site
Riel House National Historic Site information
After Louis Riel's 1885 execution for treason, his body was brought to his family home before being buried in St Boniface Basilica. Riel grew up on this farm in a cabin by the river; the 1880s house now on display housed his descendents as recently as the 1960s. Now surrounded by subdivisions, the house is 9km south of the center.
