History[edit | edit source]

In 1928 the locality Vännäs was detached from the rural municipality with the same name, forming the market town of Vännäs.
The two entities were reunited in 1971 and in 1974 Bjurholm Municipality was added. A split took place in 1980 when Bjurholm Municipality was re-established.
