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

Fir time in Enterprise and was told we needed to go see the Boll Weevil. It's not very big but it was definitely a unique stop during our visit. Now I can say I saw it:)

Never seen a monument to a Boll Weevil. How could anyone visit Enterprise and not go to this unique display. You can't miss it.....right in the center of town. Watch out for traffic in both directions. Everyone we talked to said when you are in Enterprise go see this monument. It will give you bragging rights. We have been traveling for years and this certainly was a 1st for us.

So, the monument isn't really a tourist destination. It's no Statue of Liberty or anything remotely close. It's a monument in the middle of the road that pays homage to the boll weevil. It's worth a drive through town, if you're in the area. It's interesting and quirky, which I highly enjoy.
