In the 1800s, Gainesville was a place where stagecoach drivers changed out their horses. After the railroad to Strasburg, VA was built in 1852, the Gainesville train depot was developed, named after Thomas Brawner Gaines who gave the railroad right-of-way through the land he owned along Route 29. The town then became a shipping point for grain, timber and cattle. Gainesville’s first town home community began in 1994, and the Gainesville Interchange improvement project begun in 2006 and was completed in 2015, easing the growing traffic in the Gainesville-Haymarket area. Gainesville has grown in its residential and commercial development, and is a highly desirable area to move into in the DC Metro area.
