Fair Hill is a 5,656 acre Natural Resources Management Area, where multiple management practices are employed for the maximum use and protection of Maryland's natural resources. Bordered by Pennsylvania to the north and less than one half mile west of Delaware, Fair Hill is known for its pristine fields, woodlands and natural beauty. 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 rider who acquired the farmland as a means to enjoy riding as well as fox chasing. Fair Hill was purchased by the state in 1975 from Mr. duPont's estate.


The storied tradition of Eventing at iconic Fair Hill continues with the Maryland 5 Star every October at the Fair Hill Special Event Zone in Elkton, Maryland!​ One of only two 5 Star events in the United States, and seventh worldwide, the prestigious 5 Star designation is the pinnacle of the sport of Eventing, best described as an equestrian triathlon. The event showcases four days of competition in Dressage, Cross-Country and Show Jumping.
