Great little monument, Im not sure why it's more important to credit a bug instead of George Washington Carver "The Farmer's Best Friend" who is the real reason for the recovery of the crop. Maybe it's a southern thing? Anyway, it's a nice monument but,...More

There is a statue of a woman holding a big insect standing in the middle of Main Street. A small plaque nearby says the statue was erected to express appreciation for the boweevil. This is (supposedly) the only monument built in honor of an agricultural...More

Strange piece of architecture commemorating an odd piece of local history. The Boll Weevil Monument seems also to mark the middle of Enterprise Main Street, a pleasant place to visit all on its own. Certainly worth a look. Looked very festive when I was there.

This is something really neat to check out. You can't go wrong. It's also just neat to see. Stop & learn about Enterprise's history.

After a few times visiting enterprise I finally saw the statue. The statue is in the middle of the road so it is hard to miss.

Fir time in Enterprise and was told we needed to go see the Boll Weevil. It's not very big but it was definitely a unique stop during our visit. Now I can say I saw it:)

Never seen a monument to a Boll Weevil. How could anyone visit Enterprise and not go to this unique display. You can't miss it.....right in the center of town. Watch out for traffic in both directions. Everyone we talked to said when you are in...More

So, the monument isn't really a tourist destination. It's no Statue of Liberty or anything remotely close. It's a monument in the middle of the road that pays homage to the boll weevil. It's worth a drive through town, if you're in the area. It's...More
