The Town of Lexington, Oregon is located in the Willow Creek Valley in southern Morrow County between Heppner (nine miles to the southeast) and Ione (eight miles to the northwest). The area is primarily agricultural and lies approximately forty miles south of the commercial/ industrial developments situated near the Columbia River communities of Boardman, Irrigon, Umatilla and Hermiston. The Blue Mountains rise approximately 25 miles to the east.
