Stadsbygd is a village and former municipality in Sør-Trøndelag county, Norway. The former municipality was located in the present-day municipalities of Rissa and Agdenes.

History[edit]

The municipality of Stadsbygd was established on 1 January 1838 (see formannskapsdistrikt). In 1860, the northwestern district of Rissa was separated from Stadsbygd to form a municipality of its own. The split left Stadsbygd with a population of 1,828. On 1 January 1964, the Ingdalen district south of the Trondheimsfjord (population: 171) was merged into the municipality of Agdenes. The rest of Stadsbygd, north of the Trondheimsfjord, (population: 1,616) was merged into the municipality of Rissa.[3]
