My nephew is in town and he is really into cowboys and the "olden days." We're taking him to the Alamo (he can't wait).

I am wondering if there is anything around within an hour or so that might be like a western town or showcase the "olden days?"

The Cowboy Capital, Bandera would probably be a good choice.

Gruene is another old-timey downtown with several antique stores. Go there on a nice day around mealtime and eat at the Gristmill.

Drive down to Kingsville and visit the King Ranch. Look for rodeos in the area. I personally love the small town or county rodoes over the big ones. If you have the time, the Stockyard area of Ft Worth is pretty neat.

You could take him on a horse ride at the Lightning Ranch. It is in Pipe Creek, about 20 miles outside 1604 on Hwy 16. They have rodeos every Saturday night starting May 19th.

Enchanted Springs Ranch is fun! It looks like an old western town and even had a few movies filmed there!

I just talked to someone who went there recently. I saw pictures of how this ranch has a lot of exotic animals you can see up close. Inspired me to consider checking it out this summer.
