The expansion of Innherred's urban communities was particularly intense during the 1800s, due to increased industrialisation, internal migration and centralisation.
Although they have a typical inland character, the towns of Innherred enjoy a great location by the Trondheimfjord. The expression "sea and land, hand in hand" describes these small urban areas perfectly.
Levanger was among the first ports of key importance for the growth and development of Innherred as a whole. The old trading routes from Jämtland and the rest of Sweden led to Levanger, which became Innherred's first town in 1836.
Two decades later, in 1857, Steinkjer got the same status and now functions as the area's capital and administrative center. Verdal was granted town status in 1998. The industrial area in Verdal is one of the most important in Norway as a whole.
