Chad Lindberg / August 03, 2017
"When you have an experience with the dead, that’s when you feel the most alive,” says Hollywood actor Chad Lindberg, who will be seeking out ethereal spirits at Berry Hill later this month.

There have been a number of investigations of the paranormal at the historic Berry Hill mansion, but Lindberg seeks to do more than just document and sightsee. The mansion and surrounding land has a long story of being haunted. This is the fifth and largest installment of his “Face Your Fears” events — hosting a group of people at a haunted location and seeing if they can make contact with the spirits there.

Lindberg has hosted several ghostly explorations in the past, as a contributor for “Ghost Adventures” and as a co-host on the “Ghost Stalkers” television programs. His acting career includes “The Fast & the Furious,” “Supernatural,” “Law and Order” and “The X-Files.”

After a near-death experience with Reye’s Syndrome as a kid, he’s now searching for those on the other side. “I rode the line [between life and death] for a few weeks,” he said.

“Now I go to locations all over the country and start a conversation” with metaphysical spirits.

“The way I investigate is with love and respect,” said Lindberg. “Hopefully, everybody walks out of there with an awareness of the paranormal.”

As for skeptics and cynics, Lindberg hopes they come with an open mind, ready to have fun. He notes the unexplained, strange things that have occurred throughout history and how some skeptics get swayed after attending his events. “I invite all skeptics to come,” he said with a laugh.

“I think the world is much weirder than we give it credit for,” he said.

Lindberg doesn’t go in with special equipment or gear, oftentimes just phone recorders, flashlights, cameras and his “spirit box”: It allows him to “have a conversation in real time” with the spirits around him, he said.

He encourages fellow ghost-seekers to bring any and all gear they have. His philosophy, however, is to trust his instincts and his senses. They are finely-tuned gauges designed to pick up dangers and the things that can’t immediately be seen, he said.

“I think the best equipment is peoples’ bodies,” he said.

“When I investigate, I am very much into the moment.”

Lindberg hopes to scour the main mansion for spirits but also to rove the grounds. “It’s really cool [to be in a building], but a lot of people assume you have to be inside,” he said.

Of particular interest is the Diamond Hill cemetery, containing the graves of over 200 enslaved human beings.

The event takes place Aug. 18-20 at Berry Hill Resort and offers 45 weekend passes, a Friday night event, and a Friday night welcome reception. As of this writing, the Friday-only event, not the reception, is sold out. The reception is a meet-and-greet with Lindberg and offers various merchandise for sale including shirts, hats and stickers.
