Gulen - General Information

General Information

Evindvig was established as a municipality on 1 January 1838 (see formannskapsdistrikt). The municipality of 1838 was created to be identical to the Evindvig parish (prestegjeld) that included the three sub-parishes (sokn) of Eivindvik, Brekke, and Husøy. The sub-parish of Brekke (population: 898) was separated from the municipality in 1850 to form a municipality of its own, leaving a total of 3,944 residents in Evindvig.

In 1858, the sub-parish of Husøy (population: 1,384) was separated from Evindvig to form its own municipality called Utvær (renamed Solund in 1923). This left Evindvig with 3,018 inhabitants. On 1 July 1890 the name of Evindvig municipality was changed to Gulen. On 1 January 1964, the municipality of Brekke (population: 782) was merged with Gulen. Also on that same date, the island of Losna (population: 40) was transferred from Gulen to Solund. After these changes, Gulen had a population of 3,250.
