Statue erected in 1919 in honor of the boll weevil, which bought both destruction and renewal to local farmers.

Well preserved for how long it has been there. The monument is in the middle of an intersection, you need to park and get out of your vehicle to see it unless driving by it is good enough.

It is the only monument in the world, dedicated to a bug. Interesting story and beautiful, friendly Southern city!

There is a monument in the middle of the busy downtown district. It is somewhat dangerous to try to get to the middle of the road to take any pictures. Do not go visit during typical rush hours because the locals will run you over.

Strange monument in recognition of a pest outbreak that ended up diversifying the locale economy. The monument itself is an odd statue of a lady holding a giant Boll Weevil...

This monument is in the middle of traffic, like exactly in the middle of where two roads cross. This makes it very hard to see the monument except from a distance. It almost looks like walkways to go out and see/selfie the monument, but it...More
