Leinstrand is a former municipality in the old Sør-Trøndelag county, Norway. The 46-square-kilometre (18 sq mi) municipality existed from 1838 until its dissolution in 1964. The municipality of Leinstrand encompassed the south-central part of what is now the city of Trondheim in Trøndelag county. The administrative centre was located in the village of Heimdal, just west of the border with Tiller municipality. The local Leinstrand Church was built in 1673.[2]

History[edit]

The municipality of Leinstrand was established on 1 January 1838 (see formannskapsdistrikt). According to the 1835 census, Leinstrand had a population of 1,165.[3] During the 1960s, there were many municipal mergers across Norway due to the work of the Schei Committee. On 1 January 1964, the neighboring municipalities of Byneset (population: 2,049), Leinstrand (population: 4,193), Strinda (population: 44,600), Tiller (population: 3,595), and the city of Trondheim (population: 56,982) were merged to form the new urban municipality of Trondheim which would have a total population of 111,419.[4]
