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

It's a pretty cool monument but lacks access and not large enough to warrant any kind of awe factor. I can only imagine that this would be an ideal Pokemon stop, so it may get a boost of visitors and perhaps the city can enhance...More
