Voll is a former municipality in Møre og Romsdal county, Norway. It existed from 1874 until its dissolution in 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 Måndalen which is also where the main Voll Church is located.[3]

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 (population: 1,048) and Voll (population: 695). During the 1960s, there were many municipal mergers across Norway due to the work of the Schei Committee. On 1 January 1964, the municipality of Voll (population: 1,163) was merged with the neighboring municipalities of Eid (population: 381), Grytten (population: 3,683), Hen (population: 1,663), and the southern part of Veøy municipality (population: 1,400) to form the new Rauma Municipality.[4][5]
