Today owned and administered by Parks Canada, the Riel House is mostly known for being the home of the Riel family and for Louis Riel who has lived in this house briefly in the summer of 1883. It was where Riel was laid in state after his execution in 1885.

    The visit to Riel House was such a delight, 30+ years later I still remember the elementary days of visiting this site, making bannock and churning butter, and the story telling and antique costumes of the simple days. It is a very nice place to bring your young ones to visit, especially on a beautiful summer day!
