Location was on east side of Bond Street between Minnesota and Oregon.

Marker Name: C10 - Aune’s Livery and Transfer
Marker Text: In 1905, the Aune brothers opened a livery stable and feed store on Bond Street and soon expanded it so that by 1908, their large barn occupied one-half of the block on the east side of the street. The Aune brothers specialized in providing heavy draft horses for the logging teams employed by the two large lumber mills (Brooks-Scanlon and Shevlin-Hixon) that were operating in the vast ponderosa pine stands surrounding Bend. The livery stable was torn down in 1924 as the importance of horse logging lessened but, the retail feed store continued in business for several decades.
