Foldereid is a former municipality in the northern part of the old Nord-Trøndelag county in Norway. The municipality existed from 1886 until its dissolution in 1964. The municipality encompassed the area surrounding the inner part of the Folda fjord, the Innerfolda in what is now the municipalities of Nærøysund and Høylandet in Trøndelag county. The village of Foldereid, where the Foldereid Church is located, was the administrative centre of the municipality.[2]

History[edit]

The municipality of Foldereid was established on 1 October 1886 when it was separated from the large municipality of Kolvereid (municipality). Initially, the new municipality had 948 residents. During the 1960s, there were many municipal mergers across Norway due to the work of the Schei Committee. On 1 January 1964, the municipality of Foldereid was dissolved. The eastern Kongsmoen area (population: 221) was merged into the neighboring municipality of Høylandet and the remainder of the municipality (population: 817) was merged into the neighboring municipality of Nærøy.[3]
