Rosine is an Ohio county community about eight miles east of Hartford. The community had a station on the Illinois Central Railroad and was originally known as Pigeon Roost, probably referring to Pigeon Creek.

Rosine was incorporated in 1878, but was later dissolved.

The Pigeon Roost post office opened in 1872 and was renamed Rosine in 1873.

The population of the Rosine census designated place was 113 in 2010.

Bill Monroe, known as the father of Bluegrass music, was born just outside Rosine.
