Additional Details:
Unveiled Dec. II, 1919. The only monument in the world glorifying a pest-the only record of a pest making a county one of the richest in the state from its production of peanuts and livestock. But for the devastation of the boll weevil over a period of many years Enterprise might never have been the "peanut Capitol of the World" and the "Friendliest and the fastest growing town in the Wiregrass."
