In 1995, Barons had three Alberta Wheat Pool grain elevators, a Cargill elevator and a small seed elevator.
There are no grain elevators in Barons, Alberta any more, but there is a seed elevator owned by Feenstra Seeds. That elevator was built in 1960 by Schiebout Seeds.
In 1913 Barons had five grain elevators, including the Alberta Farmers Cooperative Elevator Company Ltd. #23 and Alberta Pacific Grain Company Ltd. #70 here.
This photo from 1919 shows a few differences. The elevator in the foreground has gained an annex, the third elevator is now painted brown (Searle?) and there are two and possibly three more elevators in the background.
Here is a video of the demolition of the double composite elevator in July 2012.
