It lies at the upstream end of the Millicoma River, where the East Fork Millicoma River and West Fork Millicoma River join to form the main stem, a short tributary of the Coos River. Oregon Route 241 passes through Allegany.

A post office was established at Allegany in 1893, and it is unknown why this spelling was chosen. Allegany is used for several geographic features in the state of New York, while Allegheny is the preferred spelling in Pennsylvania.
