The Capt. John Wilson House and Bates Ship Chandlery are historic buildings at 4 Elm Street in Cohasset, Massachusetts. They are now owned by the Cohasset Historical Society. Open in the summer, the Captain John Wilson House is now a historic house museum, and the Chandlery houses displays about the town's maritime heritage.[2] They were added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2002.[1]

The Wilson House is a 2-1/2 story wood frame building, four bays wide, with a side gable roof and clapboard siding. It has Federal period styling, including a front entry surround with pilasters and a dentillated cornice. It was built in 1810. The chandlery, located east of the house, is a two story frame structure, with a hip roof and clapboard siding. The building was originally located opposite Bates Wharf on the waterfront, and was moved to its present location in 1957. It was built in 1754, and is the best-preserved remnant of Cohasset's early maritime history.[3]
