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.

The location of this monument is weird and if you aren't looking you will actually miss the boll weevil itself. It is small and perched on top of a massive white fountain in the middle of an intersection on Main Street. A lot of people...More

Sitting in the middle of "Main" street & College St this fountain is 10' to 12' wide with squirting water jets. In the middle is about an 8' tall female statue (white marble in color) holding, in her hands, above her head an overly large,...More

Although smaller than you might expect, this local treasure commemorates the boll weevil's huge impact on the local economy. It is definitely worth a little study and a quick visit, even if it is a little out of your way.

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

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.
