History

Byemoor was built in the early twentieth century along the railroad line, and was so named for the area's resemblance to a moor in England (Byemoor name originates from "By-the-moor") In its early years, it was an important centre as it was the main town for a large number of small farms. Crises in agriculture and improvement of transportation to larger centres, however, led to the slow depopulation of the hamlet and area.

As a designated place in the 2011 Census, Byemoor had a population of 35 living in 16 of its 20 total dwellings, a -30% change from its 2006 population of 50. With a land area of 0.64 km2 (0.25 sq mi), it had a population density of 54.7/km2 (141.6/sq mi) in 2011.[1]
