Jonathan Child House & Brewster–Burke House Historic District is a national historic district containing a set of two historic homes located at Rochester in Monroe County, New York.

The Jonathan Child House, located at 37 S. Washington St. was constructed 1837-1838 by Jonathan Child (1785–1860), Rochester's first mayor and son-in-law of the city's founder Nathaniel Rochester. It features a monumental two story portico and is a fine example of the Greek Revival style. The building has seen a number of uses since Child sold it in the 1840s, including once as a boarding house called The Pillars.[2] As of Fall 2012, the building is slated to open as Rochester Pillars, a special-events venue.[2]

The Brewster-Burke House, located at 130 Spring St., is a fine example of the Italianate style. The house features a hipped roof with cupola and an entrance porch with carved Moorish Revival ornamentation.[3]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1971.[1]
