Home > Find a B&B > By City > Gainesville, Texas
The first settlers arrived in 1840, lured by land grants and the promise of a better future. In 1858 Gainesville was put on the map when it became a stop on the Butterfield Stagecoach Line from Missouri to California, and Gainesville's future was secure once the Santa Fe Railroad laid its tracks through town in 1886.
Nowadays, Gainesville makes a perfect retreat from the bustle of big city life. Situated less than 70 miles north of the Dallas - Fort Worth metropolitan area, a short drive will bring visitors to another world. Book a room at a local Texas Bed and Breakfast, and feel the tension ease away.
There is much to do in charming, historic downtown Gainesville, and most everything is within easy walking distance.

You'll understand why our shops have been praised in regional and national publications, and you'll be happy you decided to stay at a Gainesville Texas Bed and Breakfast.
