Pros: What can you say.... It is the only known statue in the world that pays homage to a bug. Cons: 'Someone isolated. If I were not here for work I don't think I would make the trek to see it. TF

It's just one of those things where people think, "wow, a monument for a bug." However, it's kind of neat to see and it's right downtown. I would recommend to drive by and visit - it doesn't take too long and is worth a picture.

Just a neat photo opportunity for anyone visiting the fine city of Enterprise. It's at the intersection to the courthouse and all of Main Street's shops. It's well lit for ideal night time photos as well.

If yiu don't mind crossing into traffic with small children and ensuring that they are stuck to your side the entire time so they do not get hit by a car, then this is a decent monument. The fact that it is in the middle...More

The city of Enterprise is full of history, and this Monument is a testament to that. They have a new mural that is south of the monument that helps to illustrate that time period.
