Some history about Rowan’s:
While in high school the current co-owner of Rowan’s Flower and Gift Shop, Amydell “Rowan” Burns, worked part time in a flower shop in Mulvane, KS. In the fall of 1956 Amydell left to go to college and her mother, Iness Rowan, took her place as a part time flower shop employee. The owners of that shop in which Mrs. Rowan worked decided to retire and closed their shop about a year and a half later. Finding the town without a flower shop and being aware of Iness Rowans’ artistic abilities the city council offered to support her efforts if she would start a new shop.
On July 1, 1958 Rowan’s Flower and Gift Shop was opened in the Rowan home at 602 E. Mulvane Street. Iness and her husband, Earl, operated the shop successfuly from their home expanding it into an addition built at the front of their house. Deliveries were a bit difficult until Earl retired from Boeing Aircraft Company in the early 1970s and the couple became a full time “Mom and Pop” shop.
Due to Iness’ health problems and a desire to fully retire the Rowans offered to sell the shop to their daughter, Amydell, and her husband, Duane Burns and the younger couple accepted the offer. A few years earlier the Rowans had bought a building in downtown Mulvane. Since the shop was still in Iness and Earl’s home the purchase included

The Burnses continued to operate the shop as a ‘Mom and Pop” shop in that location until a fire which started in an adjacent building also took their building on January 28, 1999. Since that was only two weeks before Valentines Day, a big day in the flower business, the Burnses with a lot of help from family, friends, neighbors and even strangers found temporary quarters and were open again in a week in the 100 block of N.First.
The shop was operated in the temporary location for about a year and a half until the present location at 207 W. Main became available. The Burnses purchased that building and it has housed Rowan’s Flower and Gift Shop from late in the summer of 2000 until the present time.
