The first bathtub installed in the United States was installed in Cincinnati, Ohio, home in 1842. It was made of mahogany and was lined with sheet metal.

I saw a history channel show that had tubs hooked up to gas powered heaters.

I imagine that they used boiling water to warm up the cool water brought in. :) That's waht they always do in the trashy bodice rippers I've read. ;)

Would it rust?

Depends if the sheet metal in question was iron....

So yes it would corrode but if it was made of tin it wouldn't...Tin Bath anyone?
