History[edit | edit source]

Laholm Municipality is a municipality in Halland County in southwest Sweden. The seat is located in Laholm.
The uniting process during the local government reform in the 1970s took place in two steps. In 1971 the City of Laholm merged with two rural municipalities forming the unitary municipality and three years later four more units were added.
