The Col. John Streett House is a historic home located at Street, Harford County, Maryland, United States. It is a Federal style home composed of three brick sections, two of which are original and one a late 19th-century addition. The original dwelling built about 1805, consists of a 2 12-story, five-bay, gable-roofed main section and a 2-story, two-bay attached kitchen. The kitchen wing section has two unequal-sized rooms on the ground floor and a large loft room above, reached by a closed, corner stair. The home is named for Colonel John Streett (1762-1837), a man prominent in local politics and a hero of the War of 1812.[2]

The Col. John Streett House was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990.[1]
