When the Manassas Gap Railroad came through in 1852, the town of Gainesville, VA became a crossroads for commerce and travel. It remained a major shipping point for cattle well into the 1960s. Today, the town is part of a housing boom based around major new developments of townhomes and single-family residences. The town will renew its history with the railroads in 2022, when the new Gainesville railway station opens, providing commuter services for area residents to Washington D.C., Fairfax County and Manassas.
