Coffee County is famous for its tribute to the boll weevil, an insect that destroyed cotton crops across the state. The statue in downtown Enterprise is the only known monument to an insect pest. It serves as a reminder how the farmers in the county embraced crop diversity, especially peanuts, to avoid financial disaster. There are also several murals celebrating the area’s agricultural history. The county is also home to part of Fort Rucker, the state’s largest military installation. It is home to U.S. Army Aviation. The Pea River is considered one of the best canoeing areas in south Alabama, and is also is ideal for fishing.
