Voll is a former municipality in Møre og Romsdal county, Norway. The municipality existed from 1874 until 1964. The 260-square-kilometre (100 sq mi) municipality encompassed the Måndalen and Innfjorden valleys west of the Romsdalsfjorden in the west-central part of the present-day Rauma Municipality. The administrative centre of the village was the village of Voll which is also where the main Voll Church is located.

History[edit]

The municipality of Voll was established on 1 January 1874 when the old municipality of Eid og Voll was divided into the municipalities of Eid and Voll. Voll had an initial population of 695. On 1 January 1965, Voll was merged with the neighboring municipalities of Eid, Grytten, Hen, and part of Veøy to form the new Rauma Municipality. Before the merger, Voll had a population of 1,163.[1][2]
