Warrenton is a city in Clatsop County, Oregon, United States. The city is named for D.K. (Daniel Knight) Warren, an early settler. The population was 4,989 at the 2010 census.HistoryThe first settlement within the Warrenton city limits was Lexington, which was laid out in 1848, and served as the first county seat for Clatsop county. The name fell out of use, and this area became known as Skipanon, which is preserved in the name of Skipanon River which flows through the town.
