Namdalseid

Namdalseid is a former municipality in Trøndelag county, Norway. The municipality existed from 1838 until its dissolution in 2020, it was part of the Namdalen region. The administrative centre of the municipality was the village of Namdalseid. Other villages and farm areas in the municipality included Sjøåsen, Statland, Tøttdalen, Sverkmoen. At the time of its dissolution in 2020, the 770-square-kilometre municipality was the 144th largest by area out of the 422 municipalities in Norway. Namdalseid was the 348th most populous municipality in Norway with a population of 1,585; the municipality's population density was 2.2 inhabitants per square kilometre and its population had decreased by 7.7% over the previous decade. The parish of Namdalseid was established as a municipality on 1 January 1838, but it was merged into the neighboring municipality of Beitstad on 1 January 1846. On 1 January 1904, the Namdalseid district was separated from Beitstad to form a municipality of its own. During the 1960s, there were many municipal mergers across Norway due to the work of the Schei Committee.

On 1 January 1964, the parts of the neighboring municipality of Otterøy that were located south of the Namsenfjorden were transferred to Namdalseid municipality. On 1 January 2018, the municipality switched from the old Nord-Trøndelag county to the new Trøndelag county. On 1 January 2020, the neighboring municipalities of Fosnes and Namdalseid merged to form a new, larger Namsos Municipality; this occurred because on 16 June 2016, the three municipalities voted to merge as part of a large municipal reform across Norway. The Old Norse form of the name was just Eið; the name is identical with the word eið which means the "path/road between two waters". The Vikings used to drag boats across Namdalseid using the rivers and waterways in the area, to get from one fjord to another without having to risk crossing the treacherous Folda fjord by travelling up the sheltered Trondheimsfjord and continuing north along the coast; the passage was much easier in olden times as the sea level was higher and the waterways more numerous, but as as 2004 a boatdrag was done to commemorate the old traditions.

Nowadays, one has to transport the boats by road for a long stretch. The first element Namdals- was added around 1550, it is the genitive case of the old region name Namdalen. The coat of arms was granted on 8 December 1989; the arms show green and white clover leaf shapes which represent the history of agriculture in the municipality. The Church of Norway had two parishes within the municipality of Namdalseid, it is part of the Nord-Innherad prosti in the Diocese of Nidaros. The municipality bordered the municipalities of Flatanger and Osen to the west. Lakes in the region include Finnvollvatnet; the river Sverka runs through the western part of the municipality. The Namsenfjorden formed most of the northern border. All municipalities in Norway, including Namdalseid, are responsible for primary education, outpatient health services, senior citizen services and other social services, economic development, municipal roads; the municipality is governed by a municipal council of elected representatives, which in turn elect a mayor.

The municipality falls under the Frostating Court of Appeal. The municipal council of Namdalseid is made up of 19 representatives that are elected to four year terms; the party breakdown of the final municipal council was as follows: Being an agricultural municipality, Namdalseid struggled with a decline in population, as fewer and fewer people find they can make a living growing crops and raising cattle. Other areas of interest for business were fishing and nature. Having one of the best small-salmon rivers in Trøndelag, Namdalseid is a haven for fly fishing and attracts many fishermen every year. In addition to fishing many visit Namdalseid to experience the beautiful mountain scenery and to do some hunting. Namdalseid had some industry.
