The Boll Weevil Monument stature is surrounded by water in the middle of the street in downtown Enterprise. It is the only monument in the US dedicated to a pest.

walk the shops at Main street, visit the boll weevil monument and learn the history! Then stop into Butlers Tavern for a few drinks and laughs, and head on down to Annies for Dinner!

I had never seen this monument before and I was a little hyped up because I thought it would be bigger and taller. When we got there, it was smaller for sure. The story behind it being built is very cool though.

The story of this monument is very interesting. The monument itself is fairly nondescript but every history buff should take a trip to the circe to see it.

I really hate giving a poor rating, but this is one of the most inaccessible "tourist attractions" I have ever seen. It looks from the sidewalk, but you have to walk into traffic to get a better look. I looked at it for about 10...More

If you're grabbing a donut at Downtown Donuts or your wife drags you to Serendipity (women's clothing) stand in the middle of the intersection and enjoy! The monument is definitely a "been there, done that" experience. It's what it represents that is important. So, read...More
