Nordli is a former municipality in the old Nord-Trøndelag county in Norway. The 1,527-square-kilometre (590 sq mi) municipality existed from 1915 until its dissolution in 1964. Nordli encompassed the northern part of what is now the municipality of Lierne in Trøndelag county. The administrative centre for the municipality was the village of Sandvika where the Nordli Church is located.[2]

History[edit]

The municipality of Nordli was established on 1 July 1915 when the old municipality of Lierne was split in two parts: Nordli (population: 863) in the north and Sørli (population: 739) in the south. The old municipality of Lierne had been created on 1 January 1874 when it was separated from the large municipality of Snåsa.

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 Sørli (population: 898) and Nordli (population: 1,147) were reunited to once again form the municipality of Lierne.[3]
