The house remained in the Riel (Métis) family up until 1968 and it was acquired by Parcs Canada en 1969. Louis Riel himself never lived in the house. He only made one brief visit during the summer of 1883, but it was there that this body was exposed for two days in December 1885, after his execution for his participation in the North-West Resistance (North-West Rebellion). The Riel House was the first post office of Saint-Vital.
