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.

Its a small monument in the middle of mainstreet but worth the effort to see once. It states it's the only monument dedicated to a bug.When were there the town had the monument fountain decorated for the high school homecoming. It is my understanding that it is decorated for holidays and special events
