Despite its comical name, the Boll Weevil was a serious problem. A beetle that feeds on cotton buds and flowers, it devastated the southern cotton industry in the 1920’s including the critical textile industries of Cabarrus County. Importantly, this crisis helped to diversify the economies of the South, leading to the expansion of peanut farming, tobacco and other industries. So while the boll weevil may have been a pest and created serious economic hardship for Cabarrus County, it is an important part of our past. Boll Weevil Brown was created to recognize the bug’s fascinating history and impact.
