The City of Enterprise, raised a statue to the boll weevil at a time when the cotton crops were ruined by the boll weevil, causing the farmers to change to peanuts, which became a great money making crop. But, world economic conditions have made peanuts not profitable and now with new cotton and boll weevil eradication...the area farmers have gone back to cotton....smiling.
