Lexington is a town in the western part of Greene County, bordered to the west by Delaware County and the Town of Halcott, to the south by Ulster County to the east by the Town of Hunter to the north by the Towns of Ashland, Jewett and Prattsville.

Greene County was formed by an act of the New York State Legislature on March 25, 1800. It included the townships of Catskill, Coxsackie, Freehold and Durham, with a population of about 13,000. By 1852, the present pattern of towns and villages had emerged, following a series of subdivisions and merges. Today, Greene County consists of 14 towns and 5 villages.

The river towns and villages flourished as boat building, brick making and milling centers. As well as serving as supply points for inland settlers. In the mountains, several communities developed as tanning sites, utilizing the now depleted stock of hemlock forest.

By the mid-nineteenth century Greene County New York real estate was becoming a fashionable resort area catering to the upper class. It was marked by competition between the Catskill Mountain House and Hotel Kaaterskill for the tourist trade. Although these resorts and the Otis Elevated Railway leading to them are no longer in operation, remnants of this era can be viewed in the Town of Hunter.

According to the U. S. Census for 2000, the town has a total area of 79.7 sq mi square miles and a population of 830, 98% white. The median income for a household in the town was $29,375. The per capita income for the town was $20,471.

The town was first settled around 1788.    Lexington was originally named New Goshen by many settlers (or perhaps the influential ones) that hailed from Goshen, Connecticut.    In 1813 Lexington officially became a town from the Town of Windham. The town name was changed to Lexington by Silas Fowler, a captain in the Revolutionary War as a patriotic reference to Lexington, Massachusetts.   A large celebration is planned for 2013 to celebrate the history of Lexington.

Lexington is within both the Catskill Mountains and the Catskill Park. The south town line is the border of Ulster County, New York.  The Schoharie Creek flows through the town.
