Barton Villa, at 11245 Nevada St. in Redlands, California, is a historic Second Empire house that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It was built as a vernacular house during 1866-67, was renovated to Greek Revival c. 1871-72, and renovated again into Second Empire style in 1893. It was the first fired-brick house built in Redlands (and the second in all of San Bernardino County, California), and is the oldest surviving house in Redlands. When it was NRHP-listed, it was the only Second Empire house in Redlands.[2]

Also known as Barton House and as Barton Ranch, it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1996; the listing included two contributing buildings.[1] It was deemed significant for association with Dr. Ben Barton, early settler (of "Anglos") and large landowner.[2]
