Farsund municipality is formed by the four former municipalities Farsund, Spinn, Herad and Lista. Farsund became a city in 1795. Trade and shipping laid the foundation for prosperity, and "City by the Sea" was a period the world's largest shipping town by population. Vestbygdas close ties to America appear on settlement, language and culture. Vanse has one of the largest and oldest churches in Norway.
