Resting along the Red River in Winnipeg, the Riel House National Historic Site was once the family home of the Métis leader and founder of Manitoba, Louis Riel. Although he never actually resided in this traditional French Canadian farmhouse, it was here that Riel’s body lay for two days following his execution in December of 1885. His family members continued to live in the home up until 1969. In 1970, the Riel House was bought by Parks Canada and restored to its original 1886 style. Visitors can now tour through this piece of Canadian History and learn the stories behind the Riel family.
