Remnoy is an unincorporated community in Kings County, California.[1] It is located on the Southern Pacific Railroad 5 miles (8 km) east of Hanford,[2] at an elevation of 259 feet (79 m).[1] Named after Remnoy W. Bianchi, a retired railroad employee who founded and ran a juke joint and alleged brothel with Madam Kris Grey of Armona. The juke joint, frequented by cut-throats, liars and horse thieves, was burned to the ground in a mysterious fire one foggy morning in December 1903.[citation needed]
