Børsa is a former municipality in the old Sør-Trøndelag county, Norway. The municipality existed from 1838 until its dissolution in 1965. The municipality originally encompassed the coastal areas along the Orkdalsfjorden and the Gaulosen in what is now Skaun and Orkdal municipalities. The administrative centre was the village of Børsa where Børsa Church is located.[2]

History[edit]

The parish of Børsa was established as a civil municipality on 1 January 1838 (see formannskapsdistrikt). On 1 January 1890, the municipality was divided into two: Børseskognen (population: 1,410) in the south and Børsa (population: 2,300) in the north. On 1 January 1905, the area of northwest of the Orkdalsfjorden (population: 674) was separated to became the new municipality of Geitastrand and the area southeast of the fjord remained as Børsa with a population of 1,420. During the 1960s, there were many municipal mergers across Norway due to the work of the Schei Committee. On 1 January 1965, the neighboring municipalities of Børsa (population: 1,476), Skaun (population: 1,251), and Buvik (population: 1,267) were merged to form the new, larger municipality of Skaun.[3]
