Budal is a former municipality in the old Sør-Trøndelag county, Norway. The municipality existed from 1879 until its dissolution in 1964. It encompassed the Bua and Ena river valleys in the south-central part of the what is now Midtre Gauldal municipality in Trøndelag county. The administrative center of Budal was the village of Enodden where Budal Church is located.[2]

History[edit]

The parish of Budal was established as a municipality in 1879 when it was separated from the municipality of Støren. Initially, Budal had a population of 585. During the 1960s, there were many municipal mergers across Norway due to the work of the Schei Committee. On 1 January 1964, Budal (population: 529) was merged with the municipalities of Singsås (population: 1,554), Soknedal (population: 1,916), and Støren (population: 2,296) to form the new municipality of Midtre Gauldal.[3]
