Home of the "Swinging Bridge."

Regency, Texas is located in Mills County on the Colorado River on Mills County Road 433. Known initially as Hanna Valley, the town was first settled in 1854 and was subject to Comanche attacks until the 1870s. Vigilante justice against cattle rustlers followed and lasted until an intervention by the Texas Rangers in 1896. Today, Regency is home to no businesses, fewer than 50 residents, and Texas' last remaining suspension bridge open to traffic.
