Morrow County, Oregon:
Morrow County is located in the state of Oregon. The county was named for one of the first white settlers, Jackson L. Morrow, who was also a member of the state legislature when the county was created. As of 2000, the population is 10,995. The county seat is located at Heppner.
The principal industries in the county today include agriculture, food processing, lumber, livestock, and recreation. A coal fired generating plant, located in Boardman, also employs a significant number of people.
Early cattlemen found an abundance of rye along the creek bottoms of the region and drove their herds into the area to forage on these natural pastures. Ranching was the primary economic force in the county for many years. Increased settlement, the enclosure of the free grazing lands, and diminished pastures due to overgrazing, resulted in the decline of ranching during the 19th century, and farming became predominant. The completion of rail lines into the county in 1883 increased access to markets and encouraged wheat production in the area. The advent of technology for center pivot irrigation has been a further stimulus to the local economy.
The Morrow Port District, situated on the Columbia River near the town of Boardman, was established in 1958.

History of Morrow County:
Morrow County was created on February 16, 1885 from the western portion of Umatilla County and a small portion of eastern Wasco County. Heppner was designated the temporary county seat at the time the county was created and narrowly defeated Lexington in the election held in 1886 to determine the permanent county seat.History of Lexington, Oregon:
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.
Lexington was named by early settler William Penland for his hometown of Lexington, Kentucky. Lexington post office was established in 1885. In 1886, shortly after Morrow County was created, Lexington lost by 33 votes to Heppner in an election to determine the county seat. The city was incorporated in 1903, and had a population of 185 at the 1910 census.
Sheep ranching was important in the region during the days of early settlement by non-natives. It continues in the 21st century and has been joined by wheat farming and cattle ranching as significant uses of the land
