The Library Restaurant in Portsmouth, New Hampshire recently captured an eerie apparition on their CCTV footage. The restaurant, standing for 238 years, uploaded the video earlier this week, showing what appears to be a ‘ghost’ floating past the front of their establishment.
The restaurant’s motion detectors, located inside the building, were triggered by the movement caught on the outside camera. This is particularly unusual as the internal motion detectors are not designed to pick up activity from the exterior.
The restaurant staff have ruled out the possibility of car lights or wind causing the strange occurrence.

The video sparked a flurry of interest, particularly among local patrons who have shared their own experiences of paranormal activity at the restaurant. Several individuals claimed to have encountered a female ghost in the women’s restroom located on the lower level of the establishment.
However, there are skeptics who question the authenticity of the video. Some point out a jump cut in the footage at the time the ‘ghost’ appears, while others suggest that the apparition could simply be fog or steam.
