July 4, 1982 • Enterprise Celebrates City’s Centennial

Enterprise, not the Boll Weevil Monument, was being celebrated on the City’s Centennial anniversary; however, the Monument was the center of attention of the downtown festivities. The Lady stood tall above the amusements—from the sublime (music) to the ridiculous (spitting contests)—taking place on the street immediately below her. (The Enterprise Ledger, July 4, 1982)
