Stadsbygd is a former municipality in the old Sør-Trøndelag county, Norway. The municipality existed from 1838 until its dissolution in 1964. The 137-square-kilometre (53 sq mi) municipality existed on the southern part of the Fosen peninsula, along the Trondheimsfjorden in what is now the municipality of Indre Fosen in Trøndelag county. The administrative centre was the village of Stadsbygd, just north of the Stadsbygd Church.[3]

History[edit]

The municipality of Stadsbygd was established on 1 January 1838 (see formannskapsdistrikt). In 1860, the northwestern district of Stadsbygd (population: 3,733) was separated to form a municipality the new municipality of Rissa. The split left Stadsbygd with a population of 1,828. During the 1960s, there were many municipal mergers across Norway due to the work of the Schei Committee. 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 with the neighboring municipalities of Rissa (population: 3,264) and the southern part of the municipality of Stjørna (population: 1,868).[4]
