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.
