Rowanburn was founded as a coal mining community in the late 19th century to house miners from the Canonbie coalfield. The coal mines are now closed. To the south is the Riddings Viaduct, a nine-span railway viaduct built in 1864 for the Border Union Railway.
The only village shop, and garden centre, closed in 2003.
