Gainesville: Totally Texas and All American

Welcome to Gainesville, Texas, where community pride, love of country, and local businesses are at the center of it all. Entrepreneurs can find the assistance they need, and industries like agribusiness and manufacturing thrive. While the City is appealing to business owners, the ever-growing population indicates there is more to Gainesville than just a prosperous business epicenter.

People are choosing Gainesville for the historic housing, farming opportunities, top-notch schools, safe and caring healthcare facilities, and vibrant downtown atmosphere. Residents fill their leisure hours visiting the parks, eating out, perusing the unique shops, and attending concerts. Annual city festivals and Downtown Gainesville spark community pride and draw in tourists. 

Gainesville is the county seat of Cooke County and the first stop on the I-35 Corridor when driving south from Oklahoma. The city sits just 60 miles from Dallas and the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, offering residents the opportunity to enjoy an easier pace of life while still being near the big city and easy travel options. With booming business and attractive housing, plus entertainment for every mood, it’s no wonder the population has steadily increased by 8 percent over the last decade. According to Census Bureau data, the population in 2010 was just 16,010 and increased to 17,394 in 2020.
