Description:
Orkland is a former municipality in Sør-Trøndelag county, Norway. The municipality encompassed the southern third of the present-day municipality of Orkdal. The main church of the municipality was Moe Church, just south of Vormstad. Most of the population in the municipality was based in the Orkdalen valley along the river Orklaelva and near the lake Hostovatnet. The main village areas were Vormstad, Svorkmo, and Hoston.

History

The municipality of Orkland was originally a part of the municipality of Orkdal (see formannskapsdistrikt), but on 1 July 1920 it was separated from Orkdal to form a new municipality of its own. Initially, it had a population of 1,760. On 1 January 1963, the municipalities of Orkland, Orkanger, Orkdal, and Geitastrand were merged together to form a new, larger municipality of Orkdal. Prior to the merger, Orkland had a population of 1,707.
