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.

Extraordinary sight that all visitors must see. Quaint little downtown area, with unique shops surrounding this square. Not what I expected, but worth the visit.

Well preserved for how long it has been there. The monument is in the middle of an intersection, you need to park and get out of your vehicle to see it unless driving by it is good enough.

It is the only monument in the world, dedicated to a bug. Interesting story and beautiful, friendly Southern city!
