Chester is a small town located in the northernmost tip of West Virginia along the Ohio River. It's situated in Hancock County and is part of the Weirton-Steubenville metropolitan area. As of the 2000 census, the population of Chester was 2,592 residents. The town is renowned for being home to the Chester Teapot, billed as the World's Largest Teapot. It's also home to the Mountaineer Casino, Racetrack and Resort, a popular regional attraction. The name Mountaineer Race Track is new but the track existed long before it was named Mountaineer. The track was known as Waterford Park prior to 1990, and slot machines were installed in 1994. Mountaineer Casino, Racetrack and Resorts image is further enhanced by nationwide coverage of the tracks West Virginia Derby, a Grade II race that has significantly grown in stature and purse in the past decade. This first Saturday in August traditionally has been the day the Derby takes place, and is the only day of the calendar that the track offers afternoon racing. Otherwise, the races are run at night, at 7pm (Eastern Time). The resort furnishes its gamblers with 50 casino table games, including blackjack, three card poker, and roulette.
