The centerpiece to the town giving claim to 'fame' of the only momument to an insect pest. the add on of the small boll weevil is a bit disappointing but it is the town 'namesake' so to speak.

The story of the Boll Weevil Monument is worth seeing. You will have to do your research. I had to run out into the middle of the road to take a picture at the monument. We heard about it from a pastor in Baton Rouge. Shared with us a great sermon illustration in the story of the town. Worth seeing.... More

Dr. George Washington Carver is the person that changed their lives by educating them about the peanut and not a word of mention of him get real. People have also ran their cars into this eyesore bouncing off of it and hitting parked cars and knocking down the pretty light post.

I wouldn't travel much out of my way to see the Boll Weevil monument. After all, it's only a statue of a bug. But, hey, it's a big bronze statue of a bug! How often do you get to see one of those? It is in the center of the street in downtown Enterprise, so it's a little hard to... More

When have you visited a Monument that is literally in the middle of a Roadway? How about in the middle of an intersection, but without a place to be out of the traffic? Well after you've been here you can click off both of those items. It's an incredibly over-sized rendition of a Boll Weevil and a Large plaque that... More

Perched in the middle of a fountain with a small wrought iron fence sits the Boll weevil monument. The ivory woman holds a large black boll weevil high above her head displaying it to the passing cars that whiz past her spot in the middle of the intersection. Although an interesting piece of history, it's nothing to write home about.... More

Nothing against the statue, but it's a small circle in the center of the road, with a relatively small statue. I thought it was cute, and if you're gonna be living in the area, it's worth the drive to see it -but it's not really a "photo op" type monument. Again, it's cute, and I don't want to degrade the...

Well its interesting, nothing wrong with it, its just in a odd location. Don't go out of your way to see it, but if you passing through look at it. It's kinda in a dangerous place, there is no way to look close at it without risking getting run over by a car! The statue is actually smaller than a... More
