Fair Hill is a 5,613 acre Natural Resources Management Area, where multiple management practices are employed for the maximum use and protection of Maryland's natural resources. Attractions include the turf course, where steeplechase, timber course and flat races are held with pari-mutuel wagering. The fairgrounds host the annual Cecil County Fair where some 80,000 visitors attend the weeklong event. At one time one of the largest private land holdings in the East, Fair Hill was formerly owned by William duPont, Jr., an avid equestrian who acquired the farmland as a means to enjoying riding as well as fox chasing. Fair Hill was purchased by the state in 1975 from Mr. duPont's estate.
