Downtown Enterprise's former Alabama Midland Railway depot, now the Depot Museum.

The founder of Enterprise, John Henry Carmichael, settled in the area in 1881. As more people migrated to the area, the post office was moved from nearby Drake Eye to Enterprise the next year. Enterprise was officially incorporated in 1896 with a population of 250. Soon afterward, the Alabama Midland Railway chose to center in Enterprise, bringing many people with it. By 1906 the population already was 3,750. After the boll weevil destroyed most of the city's cotton, the people decided to base Enterprise's economy on peanuts. The Boll Weevil Monument was dedicated on December 11, 1919.
