Lists of people executed in Texas

Huntsville Unit, the location of the State of Texas execution chamber

The list of people executed by the U.S. state of Texas, with the exception of 1819-1849, is divided into periods of ten years.

Since 1819, 1,285 individuals (all but nine of whom have been men) have been executed in Texas as of October 14, 2015.

Between 1819 and 1923, 390 people were executed by lethal injection.

Since 1982 and as of October 14, 2015, 530 individuals (all of whom were convicted of murder) have been executed by lethal injection at the Huntsville Unit.[3] The number is over four times as many as Oklahoma[4] (the state with the second-highest total of executions in the post-Gregg era) and over 37 times as many as California (the state with the largest number of death row inmates;[5] California has not executed anyone since January 2006).
