Gainesville is a census-designated place in Prince William County, Virginia, United States. Gainesville has a humid subtropical climate, with mild winters with brief cold-snaps, and hot and humid summers with frequent thunderstorms. Spring and Autumn are pleasantly warm. 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. The town was a shipping point for grain, timber, and cattle and remained a major cattle shipping point into the early 1960s. In 1994, the groundbreaking for the town's first townhome city began; it was named Crossroads. This marked the beginning of mass-development for Gainesville.
Major commercial and residential development has taken place since 2000, resulting in Gainesville boasting six large shopping centers. The intersection of I-66 and Lee Highway boasts the largest shopping center with big box stores, such as Target Supercenter, Lowe's, Best Buy, DSW, Walgreens, and many other stores and restaurants. Somerset Crossing has a Bank Of America, Wells Fargo, and other shops. Close to US-15 are a Staples, Ross, Wegmans Food Markets, Michael's and Harris Teeter. Plans for an upscale shopping center and movie theater at the intersection of Linton Hall Road and Wellington Road are underway.
