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. A Lexington post office operated intermittently between 1850 and 1857; a Skipanon post office operated without a break from 1871 to 1903.Fort Stevens was built in the Warrenton area in 1863. Its remains are preserved as part of Lewis and Clark National and State Historical Parks.Warrenton was platted in 1889, and incorporated as a city in 1899. Built on tidal flats, it relied on a system of dikes built by Chinese laborers to keep the Columbia River from flooding the town.Warrenton has two charter fishing boat ports.GeographyWarrenton is 8mi west of Astoria across the Youngs Bay bridge spanning over 4200ft of the Youngs Bay estuary at the mouth of the Columbia River.
