Røros landsogn (English: Røros rural parish) is a former municipality in Sør-Trøndelag county, Norway. The municipality encompassed the southern part of the present-day municipality of Røros, excluding the mining town of Røros bergstad, stretching all the way south to Femunden and the Swedish border.[1]

History[edit]

The rural part of the Røros parish was established as a separate municipality called Røros landsogn in 1926 when the large municipality of Røros was split into four separate municipalities: Brekken, Glåmos, Røros bergstad, and Røros landsogn. Initially, Røros landsogn had a population of 701. On 1 January 1964, the four municipalities were reunited under the name Røros. Before the merger Røros landsogn had a population of 482.[2]
