It's the home of the University of Florida : Gainesville, not Gainsville. Alabama, Georgia, Missouri, Texas, and Virginia have one Gainesville each. New York is blessed with two - one is a town and one is a village. In any case, leave out the "e" and get a Section C Moderate Probability typo.

I'm surprised that "Typo of the day for librarians" post of August 15, 2007 - "Gainsville" repeated the error, unchallenged, of Philippe.Geril@eurosis.org in his "Gainesville around 1900" posting at http://www.eurosis.org/cms/index.php?q=node/250 by not properly attributing the photo to its published source: http://www.hrvh.org/u?/chs,151, where one can find the associated metadata.
Overall, nice blog!
