Court Exchange Building-National Casket Company is a historic industrial and commercial building located at Rochester in Monroe County, New York. It is a six story, brick structure with Richardsonian Romanesque details designed by Harvey Ellis and built in 1881 for Samuel Stein, a local manufacturer of wooden caskets. In 1890, Stein merged with several other casket manufacturers across the country to form the National Casket Company. The building was used until 1984 to manufacture, display, and warehouse caskets.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985.[1]
