Lane County, Oregon The County was named after the territory's first governor, Joseph Lane. Located in west central portion of the state, the boundaries have been changed several times. Because of the rich fertile soil, the economy has been based primarily on timber and agriculture. However the timber industry has been slumping as of late. It is predicted that it will change in the coming years to services and high technology.
