The town was named for a Welshman named Thomas Brawner Gaines (1814-1856) who sold the right of way through his land in the small town to the railroad with the stipulation that the train depot there be named after him.
Gainesville functioned as what was known as a “changing point” on the Fauquier & Alexandria Turnpike for stagecoach horses at one time. In colonial days, the town actually had two previous names (but only briefly), one of which was “Middle Grounds” because of its location between Bull Run and Broad Run. The other name was “New Stable” in the early 1800s when a new stable was built for the purpose of stagecoach drivers switching their horses.
Major residential and commercial development has been taking place since 2000, so now Gainesville has six major shopping centers. In addition, some of the major attractions in Gainesville include Virginia Gateway, an exciting new shopping megapolis, as well as some other local attractions like Cabela's, Murlarkey Distillery, Regal Cinemas, and the Tin Cannon Brewery.
