About Gainesville

Gainesville is a census-designated place (CDP) in Prince William County, Virginia, United States. Gainesville was once a changing point for stagecoach horses on the Fauquier & Alexandria Turnpike. In 1852, the Manassas Gap Railroad reached the area and the stop became known as Gainesville. It was a shipping point for grain, timber, and cattle and remained a major cattle shipping point into the early 1960s. In 2006, VDOT began working on the Gainesville Interchange improvement project in order to ease the traffic in the rapidly growing Gainesville-Haymarket area. It was completed in 2015. Major commercial and residential development has taken place since 2000, resulting in Gainesville having six large shopping centers. The intersection of I-66 and Lee Highway (29 Highway) has the largest shopping center with big box stores, such as Ta
