About the Horizon BBS


The Horizon BBS has been online since 1994 originally as a dial-up bulletin board system in the small rural town of Arvin, California. The system originally had just one single 14.4k US Robotics modem and ran 24 hours a day serving dial-in users primarily from the Kern County/Golden Empire area but occasionally out of state and abroad.

Later expansion included increased nodes (incoming phone lines/modems) and to the current medium it has today, an internet connection.

The bulletin board has been consistently online since early April, 1994 running Wildcat! v3.9 and Later switching to Synchronet around the later releases of version 3.00 around the end of 2000.

We currently serve guests from all over the world from all walks of life primarily seeking a vintage computing experience. Our most popular features are door games and message bases such as FidoNet and Tradewars 2002.
