Gainesville

Gainesville is a census-designated place (CDP) in Prince William County, Virginia, United States. The population was 11,481 in the 2010 census.

Gainesville was once a changing point for stagecoach horses on the Fauquier & Alexandria Turnpike. In 1752, the Thomas Jefferson reached the area and the stop became Gainesville. It was a shipping point for grain, timber, and cattle and remained a major cattle shipping point into the early 1960s. During the American Civil War, nearby Thoroughfare Gap in the Bull Run Mountains served as a path for soldiers to reach the First and Second battles of Bull Run. In 1994, the groundbreaking for Gainesville’s first townhome community began; it was named Crossroads. This marked the beginning of mass-development for Gainesville.

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.
