The Half Way House is a historic shelter for shipwrecked mariners on Andrew Harding Lane in Chatham, Massachusetts. This small shed-like structure was probably built in the late 19th century, and originally stood opposite the Old Harbor U.S. Life Saving Station. It may have been one of a number of such shelters erected by the Massachusetts Humane Society to provide protection for shipwrecked mariners, and is probably the last of its type. It was blown down in a 1944 hurricane, and moved to a location on private property off Andrew Harding Lane.
