The Exercise Conant House (also the Reverend John Chipman House) is a historic First Period house at 634 Cabot Street in Beverly, Massachusetts. Most of this 2.5 story wood frame house was built after 1715 for the Reverend John Chipman, and contains many fine Georgian features. Attached to its north side is a two story single-room ell that dates to c. 1695, and was probably built by Exercise Conant, son of early Cape Ann settler Roger Conant.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990.[1] A historical marker at the site reads, "Roger Conant was a prudent and religious man who led the old planters from Gloucester to Salem in 1626, and held them together until the Bay Colony was founded. This house was built on land given by him to his son Exercise Conant in 1666. -Massachusetts Bay Colony Tercentenary Commission".
