Barons is a village in southern Alberta, Canada in a region referred to as Palliser's Triangle. It is located 51 kilometres (32 mi) north of Lethbridge along Highway 23. A scene in a Superman movie was filmed at Barons. The Canadian Pacific Railway purchased the present townsite of Barons in early 1909. Charles S. Noble, an agent for the CPR sold lots to settlers. The train station was originally named "Baron", but public usage eventually evolved to "Barons".
Barons became a village on May 6, 1910 and early buildings included a hardware store, a grocery store, lumber yards, a bank, a feedmill, a dance hall, an opera house and a hotel.
