Someone said there was a fairground in Elkton Heights? I have never heard that.
In 1880, the Cecil County Agricultural Society opened the first county fair on ground at the edge of Elkton. The property started on the north side of Railroad Avenue and continued into Elkton Heights. On the expansive parcel, there were a number of attractive pavilions and buildings to support horse races, livestock exhibits, agricultural implement displays, lectures, and entertainment. The fair continued until 1897, when the enterprise fell on hard times.
