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:)

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

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... More

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.

It's a pretty cool monument but lacks access and not large enough to warrant any kind of awe factor. I can only imagine that this would be an ideal Pokemon stop, so it may get a boost of visitors and perhaps the city can enhance the display with a light show or decorations throughout the year to entice visitors to...

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... More

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
