Barons

Barons is a village in southern Alberta located 51 kilometres north of Lethbridge along Highway 52. According to Statistics Canada, as of 2006, Barons had a population of 276. In 2004, the village proudly celebrated 100 years in existence. Known for their agricultural productivity, residents of the village aptly call their home the 'Wheatheart of the West'.

During the 1960s, Barons featured nine grain elevators indicating the importance of agriculture and its impact on the local economy. Victor Erdman\'s house serves as a backdrop for a large group of friends and relatives in 1930.
