The village used to have a large population before the beginning of the 20th century. After World War II and the Greek Civil War, the population began to decline as residents moved to larger towns and cities and outside of Greece including North America. The population lost dramatically later on and is either expected to be a ghost town or have summer residents that may still work in agriculture, its only primary industry of the village ever since.


Palaiomoiri has a church, and a square (plateia), its nearest school and lyceum (middle school) and gymnasium (secondary school) are in Megalopoli.
