Longfellow in the Rhine Valley

While in the Rhine Valley in Germany recently, I visited the small town of St. Goar. A museum in Rheinfels Castle indicated that American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow spent the summer of 1842 writing in this town with a group of other artists. I haven't been able to find much information about it. The town was just gorgeous, and I could see exactly why you'd want to spend a summer here writing.
