Rosière is an unincorporated community located on the border of Kewaunee County and Door County in Wisconsin, in the towns of Lincoln, and Brussels.[2]

Economy[edit]

In 1999, Rosière became the site of the Rosière Wind Farm, a wind power site that sits on 30.5 ac (12.3 ha) near the town.[3][4] At its completion, the plant was the largest wind farm in the Eastern United States and was built on land leased from landowners in the area.[3][4]
