Lime is an unincorporated community in Baker County, Oregon, United States,
five miles north of Huntington on U.S. Route 30/Interstate 84. It is near the
confluence of Marble Creek and the Burnt River on the Union Pacific Railroad.
The Oregon Trail passes through Lime.

Lime post office was established in 1899 and closed in 1964. In 1940, the
community had a population of 18. The deposits of limestone in the area were
manufactured into lime that supplied a large area of Eastern Oregon and western
Idaho. The Acme Cement Plaster Company built a plant at Lime in 1916 to produce
plaster. The Sun Portland Cement Company bought the plant in 1921 and built
another facility for producing Portland cement. In 1926, the company merged
with Oregon Portland Cement Company from Portland; by the 1960s, the Lime
facility produced 1,200,000 barrels a year. As the nearby limestone deposits
were depleted, limestone was brought from the Nelson area near Durkee. A new
plant was built at Nelson in 1979 and the facility at Lime was closed in 1980.
Oregon Portland Cement Company merged with the Ash Grove Cement Company in 1983.
