The first St. Norbert Church was a log building built on the banks of the Red River. A second, larger church was built there in 1883 but it burned down in 1929. The third and current church was built in 1937.

The tomb of Father Ritchot.
The M�tis concern for future rights in 1869 put the community and its parish priest, Father Noel-Joseph Ritchot, at the centre of the resistance, which led to the creation of the province. It was in the original log church, at a public meeting, that the M�tis formed the Comit� National des M�tis with Louis Riel as secretary.
