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
