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, be careful getting to it as sometimes the traffic can be like one found in a busier city.

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 pest. Unfortunately, the sign does not explain why the critter is honored. It's just a drive-by attraction. Don't go out of your way yo see it.

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.
