History T

he City of Enterprise has a strong history of growth and progress. Its diversity of people, occupations, lifestyles and interests come together to produce the community spirit that has been passed down for generations. The residents of Enterprise still enjoy the security of a concerned smaller city, even though it has become larger and more progressive. The people are warm and accepting of all who visit or choose to live in Enterprise. The deep South friendliness combined with the new South progressive attitude make Enterprise a wonderful place to visit, to call home and to raise a family. Today’s Enterprise is a far cry from the piney woods with two small wagon roads running through what is now a densely populated area. The founder of Enterprise, John Henry Carmichael, moved to Coffee County and settled in the area in 1881. Carmichael built a small store on what is now North Main Street. In 1882 as others moved to the area, the post office was moved from Drake Eye, located about 5 miles north, to Carmichael’s new community. Enterprise was incorporated in 1896 with a population of 250. Two years later the Alabama Midland Railway Company located in Enterprise and with it came growth and progress. By 1906 the population grew to 3,750. Because early residents believed so much in their own town, they had a battle cry in the form of a banner stretched across the street saying, “Pull for Enterprise or Pull Out.” Property was threatened in 1915 as the Mexican boll Weevil found its way into Alabama from Texas and wreaked havoc on the cotton crop. In Coffee County, almost 60 percent of the cotton production was destroyed. Farmers faced bankruptcy and the area economy was at stake. Farmers turned to peanuts and other crops to overcome the damage brought by the boll weevil. By 1917, Coffee County produced and harvested more peanuts than any other county in the nation. (In 1993, Coffee County ranked fourth in the state of Alabama with 128,000 acres planted in peanuts.) In gratitude for the lessons taught, residents erected the world’s only monument to an agricultural pest, the boll Weevil Monument. The monument, dedicated on Dec. 11, 1919, stands in the center of the downtown district at the intersection of Main and College streets. The Boll Weevil Monument is a symbol of man’s willingness and ability to adjust to adversity. Citizens continue to remind visitors and newcomers to the city the lesson of the boll weevil. The base of the monument is inscribed: “in profound appreciation of the boll weevil and what it has done as the herald of prosperity this monument was erected by the citizens of Enterprise,

Coffee County, Alabama.” The first evidence of human occupation goes back to an archaeological find near Blanket Creek that indicates the area was used as a migration route from approximately 8500 to 700 B.C. In modern times, the region became known as the Wiregrass area, named for the grass that grew profusely in the region. During the European settlement, the Wiregrass area was the border county between the Spanish, British and French. The first federal land sale that was to become Coffee County was in 1812. The county is named after General John Coffee, Alabama commander in the Creek Indian Wars and the Battle of New Orleans. Other reminders of Enterprise’s beginnings are located throughout the city. The Pea River Historical and Genealogical Society Library is a repository of historical documents. The library and gift shop are of special value to students of history. Books, microfilm, newspaper files and old photographs can be viewed by those interested in investigating their roots or the history of Enterprise. Today, the broadened and diversified agricultural economy, local industry, and the presence of the Army Aviation Center at nearby Fort Rucker are largely responsible for Enterprise’s relative immunity to economic catastrophe.

Popular routes from Enterprise include AL 167 North to U.S. 231 at Troy and AL 167 South/FL 79 to Interstate 10 at Bonifay. The latter, a direct route to Panama City Beach, Florida, is also known as “the faster route to the Florida beaches.� Highway U.S. 84 connects Enterprise to Interstate 65 at Evergreen to the West and Dothan to the East. Once in Dothan, travelers can connect with U.S. Highway 231 to the North or South, or continue on Highway 84 into Georgia.

Business

& INDUSTRY

A

t the heart of business and the community are the Enterprise Chamber of Commerce, Inc. and the Wiregrass Economic Development Corporation. Working in partnership with the city, the Chamber and WEDC provide a positive climate for business and community development. In recent years, Policom Corporation ranked the Enterprise-Ozark Micropolitan area as the strongest economy in Alabama and 28th strongest of 576 in America. This places Enterprise-Ozark in the top five percent in the nation. The Enterprise Chamber of Commerce, Inc. has been the voice of the business and community since it was founded in 1941. The Chamber is actively involved in economic and community development, including business recruitment, retirees, tourism, healthcare, workforce development, military affairs, agriculture, education, technology and downtown revitalization. The Chamber continues to work on defining and meeting the needs of businesses and the community. Founded in 1994, the Wiregrass Economic Development Corp. is a public-private partnership that represents the local government and a diverse section of the Enterprise business and industry community. WEDC works to help develop and recruit new industry expand and diversify existing industry, and promote economic development for the city of Enterprise, Daleville, Elba, New Brockton, Geneva, and the counties of Coffee and Geneva. WEDC is located in the business incubator building at Yancey

Parker Industrial Park as part of a continual effort to help new and expanding business development in the region. Residents can be justifiably proud of city government. The municipality functions with a mayor/council system of government and quality administrators. They continually strive to provide the most comprehensive services available for the tax dollars spent. The population of the city of Enterprise has grown 25.4 percent since 2000 and continues to be one of the fastest-growing communities in the state. This rapid growth and economic strength led to Enterprise being named “Alabama Boom Town of the Year� in 2010. Economic diversity and adaptation has been a common theme in Enterprise since its inception over a century ago. When the Boll Weevil devastated the cotton harvests in 1915, the farmers of Coffee County learned to react, adapt and diversify. That ingenuity is still alive and well, represented in the agricultural offerings found throughout Enterprise. While peanuts and poultry have been around for nearly 100 years, other agricultural commodities include cattle, cotton, dairy, hay, corn, forage crops, oats, vegetables and many others. Today, the Enterprise economy is split evenly between agriculture/agribusiness, military, industry, retail and service industries, with each sector claiming approximately 20 percent of the economy. Today, Coffee County accounts for about $200 million worth of agricultural and agribusiness products per year. Farm Futures magazine has ranked Coffee County the No. 1 agricultural producer in the state of Alabama, and in the top 100 of nearly 3,000 counties nationally. This statistic is truly amazing considering that Enterprise is a growing urban area and has other industries. But since Enterprise participates heavily in farm-city type activities, it ensures that everything possible is done to promote strong relationships between the urban and farm communities. While the Enterprise area is still one of the leading agricultural producers in the state of Alabama, there is also a diverse business and industrial sector that flourishes throughout the region.

ounded in 1905, Medical Center Enterprise (MCE) began as a 10-bed hospital staffed by one physician. Today, Medical Center Enterprise is a modern, 131-bed, progressive, acute-care facility staffed by a team of more than 450, partnering with nearly 100 independent physicians. As Enterprise has grown, so has Medical Center Enterprise with renovation projects such as the addition of 29 private patient rooms on the hospital’s fourth floor, installation of a state-of-the-art GE HDX 1.5 Tesla magnet MRI (giving MCE breast MRI capability), and the recent addition of a Philips Ingenuity 64-slice Cat Scan machine providing low dose, high quality imaging for the patient. MCE is the only Designated Lung Cancer Screening Center in the Wiregrass. Medical Center Enterprise also constructed a $5.2 million addition, adding on a two-story building called the MCE Women’s Center just for mothers and their new babies. The private wing has an entire first floor waiting area, and the second floor houses five labor and delivery rooms and 13 private postpartum rooms. A four room Sleep Center is located on the third floor, offering patients a two part sleep study with all of the comforts of home. These are just a few of the improvements made, with patient care and safety in mind. Twenty-four-hour emergency care with a newly added ‘fast track system’ (moving patients with non-life threatening illness or injury to a different location within the hospital to be seen faster by a provider), obstetrics, gynecology, inpatient and outpatient surgery, diagnostics, orthopedic (full joint replacements available), endoscopy, as well as in and outpatient physical therapy are just a few of the services provided by MCE.

Military:

FORT RUCKER

S

upporting the military has been a rich and proud tradition for more than 60 years in Enterprise. So much, in fact, that in Enterprise, the word “military” has become synonymous with “The Home of Army Aviation” – Fort Rucker. Established in 1941 as a boot camp for the infantry in WWII, the post quickly became the training and proving grounds for tank divisions, replacement troops and the Women’s Army Corp. Formerly known as Camp Rucker, it was closed for several years in the 1950s, but was given new life in 1954 when the Army Aviation School moved here from Fort Sill, Oklahoma. Camp Rucker would officially take the name Fort Rucker in October 1955 and has remained active since. In 1973 all of the Army aviation flight training was consolidated at Fort Rucker, turning the post into a Mecca for Army Aviators. In 1983, the Secretary of the Army signed the official order, which would establish Fort Rucker as “The Home of Army Aviation.” Today, Fort Rucker is the primary site for virtually allinitial rotary wing and associated aviation safety courses in the U.S. military, as well as some NATO countries.
