I live in cotton country in Tennessee, so it was interesting to see the only monument in the world to a bug! I walked all around the fountain which is in the middle of the intersection, closely examined the nearby mural, taking pictures of it all for posterity. Pretty darn interesting!

It is a monument in the middle of the road in the middle of downtown Enterprise and you can't miss it or you will run over it!! It is all "Hail to the Bug" that saved this area from poverty many decades ago. It is historical. It is a conversation piece. It is a Boll Weevel.

Very small monument and it reminds me of National Lampoon's European Vacation... "look kids its the Boll Weebil Monument".. that is about it. I told the kids the story of what the bug did.. but it was about 1 minute of conversation. sorry bug monument :(

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 seconds and tha's about all there is to it. Do not go out of your way expecting something worthwhile but glance at it if you're wasting time in Enterprise Alabama.

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 up first!

Definitely a must see in Enterprise that takes only a couple minutes to appreciate.
