Pagan-Fletcher House is a historic home located at Valley Stream in Nassau County, New York. It was built about 1840 and is a two story, clapboard sided dwelling, five bays wide with a shallow central portico. It has a one story rear wing with an exterior end chimney. It was extensively remodeled in the early 20th century to the Colonial Revival style, when the farmhouse was more than doubled in size. It is the only surviving 19th century structure in Valley Stream. The house was the site of the village's first post office.[2]

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

The house has been restored by the Valley Stream Historical Society to an early 20th-century appearance.[3] It is open to the public on Sunday afternoons.
