WORLD'S FIRST USE OF THE GAS
CHAMBER FOR AN EXECUTION

THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

When was the gas chamber first used for an execution?

The first time the gas chamber was used for an execution was in Nevada on February 8, 1924 when Gee Jon was executed for the murder of Tom Quong Kee in Mina, Nevada on August 27, 1921.

The building was much too large to be used for an execution by gas inhalation but the prosecutor’s were still happy with the results. Because it was so large, the gas took a long time to fill the building and the cost of the gas was extremely high.

The second execution to be held in the building was done just as inefficiently and so, construction of a building deemed specifically for gas execution was built in 1929.
