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

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.
