Back in the early 1800's. Gainesville was home to a stagecoach way station where drivers could change their horses and passengers could stretch their legs and enjoy a rest from the bumpy road. The Manassas Gap Railroad arrived in 1852 and the stop became known as Gainesville - an important shipping point for cattle and grain. In fact, the town still enjoys a reputation for its high-quality natural grass-fed cattle producing farms.
