Things to do and see in Enterprise Alabama

When looking for things to do in Enterprise, Alabama, the first stop one should make is the Enterprise Welcome Center. The welcome center serves as a rest stop and is a replica of an early 19th-century log home. Maps and brochures are readily available to assist in your adventure in and around Enterprise, Alabama. There are also guides that can answer any questions you may have as well as give tours of the Little Red Schoolhouse, a replica of a rural American school complete with desks, schoolbooks, chalkboards, and a pot bellied stove.

There are several monuments worth stopping at in the city area. Probably the most famous one would be the Boll Weevil Monument in the center of town. This monument is a statue of a female figure holding a trophy with a boll weevil on top. Although the monument celebrates the diversified prosperity of Enterprise, it is said to be the world’s only monument to an agricultural pest. Farmers had to plant crops other crops than cotton when the boll weevils infested the crops which became more lucrative than relying on just cotton.

The Enterprise Depot is close to the Boll Weevil Monument and rich in history as well. The building was originally built in 1903 by the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad. The Pea River Historical Society purchased the building in 1974 and began the current museum.

Built at the same time as the depot, the Rawls Hotel was and still is a hub of activity for many travelers. The hotel is now a bed and breakfast plus a restaurant and bar where guests can relax close to the city shops downtown. The hotel has also had a number of “unusual occurrences” and ghost stories to add to its intrigue. Definitely worth stopping by to visit or get a bite to eat.
When looking for a quiet spot, check out the Enterprise Recreational Complex. The complex has lighted walking trails, a children’s playground area, a scenic lake and a picnic pavilion. Would be the perfect area for the kids to get out of the car and run around and play.

Although not in the city of Enterprise, the U.S. Army Aviation Museum at Fort Rucker is definitely worth making a side trip to see. The museum has over 160 military aircraft as well as one of the largest collections of military helicopters in the world. Displays highlight the Army’s involvement in aviations from the days of the Wright brothers and combat aircraft of World War I, to the modern technology aircrafts flown today. However, if unavailable to make it to Fort Rucker, make sure to visit the UH-1 or “The Huey” helicopter donated by US Army Aviation Center in Enterprise. Around the base is the "Walk of Generals" featuring plaques honoring commanding generals of Fort Rucker.

From old schoolhouses to railroad depots and haunted hotels, there are lots of things to do in Enterprise, Alabama. A little bit of history mixed with a little bit of intrigue equals quite an adventure.

Thanks forsharing.  Here is a New Year poem for you!

 

Wonder and amazement abound

 

Through the air rushes the sound

 

Church bells ring for all to hear

 

As heralds of the coming new year

 

 

 

What will it bring this new year to come?

 

Will it bring joy for everyone?

 

Will conflict around the earth cease?

 

Will we finally live in peace?

 

 

 

One thing is certain it seems to me

 

That there will be plenty of opportunity

 

Making connections and furthering our dreams

 

Looking above for our star as it beams

 

 

 

The chance to seek out kindness wherever it lies

 

And find to the love that is hidden in everyone’s eyes

 

Take the extra moment to open the door

 

You’ll find it rewarding and you’ll feel good for sure

 

 

 

Slow down and watch earth’s beauty unfold

 

Listen for truths that to you will be told

 

As glancing raindrops make designs in a pond

 

And birds take flight above and beyond

 

 

 

Protect nature’s abundance with your every measure

 

So that those to come might inherit the treasure

 

Universal forces will align in your favor

 

And your aspirations you’ll be allowed to savor

 

 

 

Every chance to advance is before you to untether

 

All still lies ahead to be earned by your endeavor

 

Enthusiasm pushes you forward with passion

 

Great achievement with your skills you will fashion

 

 

 

The year ahead is full of promise and hope

 

An unblemished canvas with unlimited scope

 

May we all take our brushes and such a bold opus create

 

That all we encounter will gasp and appreciate
