Hornnes is a village and a former municipality in Aust-Agder county, Norway. Hornnes is located in the present-day municipality of Evje og Hornnes in the traditional district of Setesdal. Hornnes was a municipality of its own from 1886 until 1960.NameThe municipality of Hornnes is named after an old Hornnes farm, since the first church was built there. The first element is horn which means "horn" and the last element is nes which means "headland". So the meaning of Hornnes is "the headland shaped like a horn".HistoryThe municipality of Hornnes was created on 1 January 1886 when the municipality of Hornnes og Iveland was divided into two separate municipalities: Hornnes (population: 1,113) and Iveland (population: 1,103).On 1 January 1960, Hornnes was merged with Evje to form a new municipality called Evje og Hornnes. Prior to the merger Hornnes had a population of 1,280. On 1 January 1986, the Lislevand farm area (population: 8) in the neighboring Birkenes municipality was transferred to the municipality of Evje og Hornnes.AttractionsHornnes churchThe church in Hornnes is an octagonal shaped building that was constructed in 1828. Documents show that there was a church in Hornnes as far back as 1327. There are also records in Rome referring to "Ornes i Odralen" (Hornnes Church is part of the Otredal prosti).
