ⓘ List of people executed in Pennsylvania

The following is a list of people executed by the U.S. state of Pennsylvania.

A total of 1.043 people have been executed in Pennsylvania since 1693, the third highest of any other state or commonwealth in the Union, after New York 1.130 and Virginia 1.361.

Until 1915, hanging was the common method of execution. 1915 saw the first use of the electric chair, even though it was approved by the Pennsylvania General Assembly in 1913. The delay was due to the time needed to finish the Western Penitentiary in Centre County, now the State Correctional Institution – Rockview. On November 29, 1990, Governor Casey changed the form of execution to lethal injection.
