This is Reagan Wells!

A land of healing waters.

Reagan Wells: Reagan Wells, a small rural community located on RR1051 and the Dry Frio River 25 miles north of Uvalde was settled in 1876. The Dry Frio River has numerous spring-fed swimming holes and runs intermittently depending on rainfall. The famous “Reagan Well” mineral water once attracted those desiring healing, and today the area offers several lodgings off the beaten path. Visit the Hummertage to see unique wood carving techniques and an assortment of hand-crafted gift items.

Fun Facts:

  • The town is probably named for John Reagan, who was the first person to commercialize the area’s mineral waters
  • In an attempt to attract visitors to the mineral waters, Reagan built a two-story hotel
  • A subsequent owner, B. W. Briggs, constructed cabins near the hotel to accommodate visitors anxious to bathe in the mineral waters
