Owner description: Statue erected in 1919 in honor of the boll weevil, which bought both destruction and renewal to local farmers.
Reviewed August 21, 2016

Visited friends for dinner and walked around the town. In the center of the main street there is a statue of a lady holding up a boll weevil. This was fun as to do. Just a little ole' boll weevil. This is one of those things you do so that you can tell others you had your photo taken with a boll weevil statue - too funny.

Enterprise has a lovely Downtown from the streets adorned with the American Flags and hanging planters.

Cute shops, Boil Weevil Monument, Building Murals, and cute Restaurants.

It is quaint and lovely!

Not like there is much to see, but it is a unique monument to the agricultural pest, the Boll Weevil. It's in the middle of the intersection so getting up close is tricky

What else but a 1919 monument to the Boll Weevil! This unfortunate pest brought down the cotton crop but allowed the development of more diverse and more profitable agricultural interests like peanuts.

Statue is located right in the center of downtown. I am told, tourist regularly, park their cars, and walk into the street to have their picture taken with the statue. It's pretty comical to me, but hey it's listed as #2 thing to do when in town! lol
