Henry Spanner was a lumberman, and like many of the prominent lumbermen who moved to Asheville at the turn of the century, such as G.W. Pack, he had business relationships in Ohio, and other northern states and was well established before making the move to Buncombe County.|

Henry Spanner was in the lumber business in Ironton, initially with his brother-in-law J. Peter Newman, and then in the firm Spanner, Goodman & Cohen, which became the Ironton Lumber Company after Spanner's death in 1902.
In 1906, Spanner's sister Estelle married L.E. Hunter, and in 1911 the couple, along with Estell'es mother Margaret Spanner, and sister Alma Spanner, moved to Asheville, NC.
