Mosvik og Verran is a former municipality in Nord-Trøndelag county, Norway. It was located on the Fosen peninsula, on the west side of the Trondheimsfjord. It included the present municipality of Mosvik and the southern part of the present municipality of Verran. The municipality was centered around the Verrasundet, a branch of the Trondheimsfjord.[1]


The municipality of Mosvik og Verran was established on 1 January 1867 when the western part of the municipality of Ytterøy was separated to form a new municipality. Initially, Mosvik og Verran had a population of 2,949. On 1 January 1901, Mosvik og Verran was divided to create two new municipalities: Mosvik (population: 969) and Verran (population: 1,456). The municipality of Mosvik has continued with these borders until 2012 when it will merge with neighboring Inderøy municipality. Verran continued until 1 January 1964 when it was merged with Malm to form a new, larger municipality of Verran.[2]


The municipality of Mosvik og Verran was led by three different mayors during its existence.

  • 1867–1882: Benedict Jenssen
  • 1883–1898: Martin Følstad
  • 1899–1901: Jørginius Stavrum
