The Aaron Wheeler House is a historic colonial house at 371 Fairview Avenue in Rehoboth, Massachusetts, United States. The two-story gambrel-roofed wood frame house was built c. 1745, and is one of the town's best-preserved examples of the style. It is also notable for its detailed deed history, which is also rare in Rehoboth. Aaron Wheeler, its builder, was a farmer, part owner of local industrial sites, and was an active participant in the American Revolutionary War.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.[1]
