BBSs were very popular in the 80s-90s. As the Internet became popular, BBSs started to disappear. Some of us refused to go.
This website is still in the beginning stages. There will be more information and content added.
Please watch your step, and don't step in the pile of green stuff to your left. (we're not sure what it is...)
Feel free to bookmark this page, and visit it often, as there will be a lot of valuable information coming in the near future.

Originally born in 1993, Castle Rock BBS has come back from the ashes in 2016.
In 1993, I started playing around with a program called Telegard BBS. Soon after, programs such as Illusion BBS were tested. Eventually, Proboard was installed, and I never looked back. With the addition of Intermail and many other back-end programs, Castle Rock BBS was born.
In late 1997 and early 1998, there were many changes in my personal life. I had just finished basic training in the US Air Force, and had been gone from the computers for over 6 months. During that time, the BBS usage had dropped significantly, and some problems had started developing between programs. At that time, I had decided, it was time to flip the switch off, and move on with other hobbies.
While I would occasionally, check into the BBS world, I didn't consider starting another system until 2016. After searching for BBS Programs that were still under development, I was surprised to find the community was still alive and well.
It seemed as though there were two main programs available, Synchronet and Mystic. I set up Synchronet and went offically online. Mystic was soon to follow.
